Kernel Log: Coming in 2.6.38 (Part 1) � Graphics

“Kernel version 2.6.38 supports AMD’s new Fusion CPUs and offers
2D and 3D acceleration with many current GeForce and Radeon
graphics cards. Power economy for the graphics cores in Intel
processors and chip-sets has been improved; new page flipping
features aim to eradicate image flickering, tearing and incomplete
rendering issues.

“Less than five days after closing the 2.6.38 merge window,
Linus Torvalds has already issued the second release candidate of
Linux 2.6.38. Last Saturday’s fast follow-up wasn’t due to a major
flaw in 2.6.38-rc1; it had more mundane reasons. On Sunday,
Torvalds travelled to this year’s Linux.conf.au (LCA), which,
despite the flooding, is being held in Brisbane this week. Before
travelling, Torvalds wanted to test whether he had installed all
the kernel development and release components he needed on the
computer he intended to take.”
