Re: Xorg 6.9 +8178
I have different experience. With composite extension under latest drivers (8178) several problems occure:
- XV still don't work. Video flicks, glitches and other nasty things.
- GL applications freeze server. (they work just OK without composite)
- Macromedia Flash don't work with composite (this have no relation to nvidia of course)
Nothing changed from Xorg 6.8 release.
So, X7.0 release is just a vaporware. They switched from Imake to Autoconf building system, introduced a "new rendering technology" XAA (side note: it is supported only on some exotic hardware) and have done nothing else.
We still have various problems with Composite. We still don't have working Xgl and so on. Great work!
