"With the latest version comes greater compatibility with
machines such as SPARC, IA/64, LynxOS, and even our favorite,
"Now that more operating systems are supported, what about
the cards? In XFree86's latest release, arguably one of the most
awaited arrivals into the *NIX word, the 3dfx Voodoo5 is finally
supported. 3dfx promised support on *NIX platforms
approximately one month after the V5's release, and XFree86
delivered. Since Glide has been ported to *BSD, this makes it look
like the ultimate choice for a *BSD user who wishes to utilize the
new DRI module for 3D acceleration."
"Additionally, support for Matrox, ATI, and NVidia cards have
been greatly improved."
"For NVidia, although, this support didn't come easily. Several
days after XFree86 4.0.1's release, reports of problems all over
starting springing up-and all fingers were pointed at NVidia. It
seemed that NVidia's 0.9-3 drivers were not up to par with the new
XFree release and caused much commotion between NVidia users all
over. A week and two patches later, NVidia support is finally up
and going and a new series of drivers, 0.9-4 have been released,
although not publicly on NVidia's website."
