update NEWS and version

1 Version 0.91 - 30 March 2011
2
3 - evdev needs to be loaded before calling getInputDevices_and_usb
4 else it will lead to a crash (pterjan)
5 - use UseEdid instead of IgnoreEDID with nvidia96xx since the latter is
6 obsolete (#40006)
7 - remove "3D hardware acceleration" from the UI, it will always be enabled
8 by default since we unconditionnally add the "dri" module to xorg.conf now
9 (#58933)
10
11 Version 0.90 - 26 May 2010
12
13 - translation updates
14
15 Version 0.89 - 11 May 2010
16
17 - mouse:
18 o remove imwheel support
19
20 Version 0.88 - 25 February 2010
21
22 - rename wacom driver package to its current name
23 - remove obsoleted video drivers from video driver list, add some new ones
24
25 Version 0.87 - 9 February 2010
26
27 - XFdrake:
28 o use -X option for ldconfig when switching alternatives, we only need the
29 cache rebuilt (Anssi Hannula)
30 o do not disable Composite extension by default when using fglrx driver
31 (Anssi Hannula)
32 o do not disable loading of dri module for non-glx drivers, as KMS drivers
33 require it as well
34 o do not disable loading of glx module for fbdev, in order to allow AIGLX
35 to work in software rasterizer mode
36 o do not add dbe and extmod modules to xorg.conf anymore, they are loaded
37 by default anyway
38
39 Version 0.86 - 26 November 2009
40
41 - keyboarddrake:
42 o make sure to properly init the console keymap before dumping it during
43 initial configuration, should fix console keymap setting in finish-install
44
45 Version 0.85 - 22 October 2009
46
47 - mousedrake:
48 o fix input module path on 64 bit machines
49 o don't install input drivers if X isn't here
50 - XFdrake:
51 o enable ctrl+alt+backspace by default
52
53 Version 0.84 - 9 October 2009
54
55 - run ldconfig after update-alternatives during installer too
56 (psb alternative does not have a higher priority than standard
57 alternative, and ldconfig was run by the installer only before
58 manually setting the alternative, which was not enough)
59
60 Version 0.83 - 8 October 2009
61
62 - use 28.8kHz as lower HorizSync (for 800x480)
63
64 Version 0.82 - 23 September 2009
65
66 - don't consider xorg.conf files with no InputDevice sections as invalid, fixes bug reported on cooker mailing list
67
68 Version 0.81 - 23 September 2009
69
70 - add psb driver support (for Poulsbo chipset)
71
72 Version 0.80 - 22 September 2009
73
74 - XFdrake:
75 o don't write sections in xorg.conf for USB wacom tablets, Synaptics
76 touchpads, mouses using "evdev" or "mouse" and keyboards
77
78 Version 0.79 - 14 September 2009
79
80 - XFdrake:
81 o fix DontZap option issue with old xorg.conf files
82 - allow to skip framebuffer setup (and thus splash removal) for newer
83 harddrake releases
84
85 Version 0.78 - 9 September 2009
86
87 - XFdrake:
88 o added "Disable Ctrl-Alt-Backspace" option
89
90 Version 0.77 - 22 July 2009
91
92 - XFdrake:
93 o correctly detect proprietary drivers that are located in
94 /usr/lib/drivername/xorg (#52384)
95
96 Version 0.76 - 25 June 2009
97
98 - keyboarddrake:
99 o update the xkb HAL keys when the keyboard layout is changed so that it
100 persists after a X server restart. Bug #49725
101 - XFdrake:
102 o when probing for video cards, ignore cards which are not in the VIDEO_VGA
103 PCI class (it is pretty common for dual-head ATI cards to have a
104 VIDEO_OTHER device for example). This has the potential of breaking
105 dual head setups, so it needs careful testing in Cooker ;) See bug #48028
106 o fix crash when both monitor and driver can not be probed (in
107 harddrake service or XFdrake --auto), for example with some Quanta
108 IL1 netbooks using Chrome9 IC3
109
110 Version 0.74 - 22 April 2009
111
112 - mousedrake:
113 o fix vmmouse configuration for vmware (#49654)
114
115 Version 0.73 - 21 April 2009
116
117 - tweak Intel driver accel methods in xorg.conf so that it's more consistent
118 with what the new Intel driver expects.
119
120 Version 0.72 - 15 April 2009
121
122 - XFdrake:
123 o fix selecting proprietary drivers with xdriver=DRIVER boot option
124 o do not add Load "freetype" to xorg.conf as the module does not exist
125 anymore
126 o use Plug'n'Play monitor when in vbox and don't specify any default
127 resolution, fixes #49642
128
129 Version 0.71 - 2 April 2009
130
131 - XFdrake:
132 o add support for xdriver=DRIVER kernel boot option that affects
133 non-interactive device autodetection, e.g. One boot
134 (special value xdriver=free disables proprietary drivers)
135 o add nouveau driver into the driver list
136
137 Version 0.70 - 20 March 2009
138
139 - mousedrake:
140 o configure input driver as 'vmmouse' if running in vmware (#29106)
141 o test if the file is there before trying to install the packages, that saves
142 a rpm -q in harddrake service after adding/removing/changing a mouse
143 - XFdrake:
144 o adapt for recent changes in proprietary driver alternatives
145
146 Version 0.69 - 29 January 2009
147
148 - XFdrake:
149 o use option -noAutoAddDevices when testing X
150 (useful during installation, #47237)
151
152 Version 0.68 - 28 January 2009
153
154 - keyboarddrake:
155 o bug fix: overwrite previous /etc/sysconfig/keyboard Xkb information when
156 changing keyboard
157
158 Version 0.67 - 8 January 2009
159
160 - mousedrake:
161 o synaptics driver in now in package x11-driver-input-synaptics (#45531)
162
163 Version 0.66 - 18 December 2008
164
165 - keyboarddrake:
166 o do not configure hal directly, but write in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard Xkb
167 information so hal can get them
168 o new option "--migrate" which adds Xkb information in
169 /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
170 o correctly handle default XkbModel
171 (so that we do not force pc105 when we should not)
172
173 Version 0.65 - 8 December 2008
174
175 - keyboarddrake:
176 o configure hal so Xorg can get xkb info
177 (nb: for now, you must "service haldaemon restart" to be taken into account)
178 - XFdrake:
179 o generic flat planel must allow "800x480 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 29.82 kHz"
180 so "HorizSync 31.5-90" is too strict, generating "HorizSync 29.5-90"
181 o have Option "PanelGeometry" "XXxYY" on geode driver
182 o do not display the weird ratios 128/75, 85/48 (for 1024x600 and 1360x768)
183 o do not load "Type1" module by default (disabled in xserver-1.5.x)
184 o special hack for gdium: the "default monitor" is "Plug'n Play" instead of
185 good_default_monitor() (it will work since the resolution is passed to the
186 kernel on gdium)
187 o there is no reason "automatic" resolution should imply "automatic" color
188 depth
189 - mousedrake, XFdrake:
190 o do not use /dev/mouse symlink (in xorg.conf)
191 - mousedrake
192 o do not propose to test the chosen mice
193 (it doesn't handle evdev/synaptics and so is quite obsolete nowadays)
194
195 Version 0.64 - 1 October 2008
196
197 - XFdrake:
198 o explicitly Load or Disable module "dri"
199 (to be independent of Xorg's default choice)
200
201 Version 0.63 - 30 September 2008
202
203 - translations updates
204
205 Version 0.62 - 25 September 2008
206
207 - XFdrake:
208 o set "PreferredMode" in Monitor section if the user changes the resolution
209 (we still do not use PreferredMode for the default resolution)

212
213 - keyboarddrake:
214 o fix lithuanian keyboard choices (cf #41031)

226
227 - XFdrake:
228 o use 24dpp by default, even on DRI (needed for kde4)
229 o ensure we don't drop non-main "Device" (when modifying "Options", #41410)
230 o use nvidia-current default settings for nvidia173 as well
231 o no need to force XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps, it is the default now in
232 x11-server
233
234 Version 0.58 - 9 June 2008
235
236 - XFdrake:
237 o Composite is now the default in xserver 1.4 (#35043)

283 o "ro" really is "ro(std_cedilla)"
284 (to be more standard on unpatched xkeyboard-config)
285 o "ro(us)" is wrong and not qwerty, use "ro(winkeys)" which is the only

287
288 Version 0.50 - 11 March 2008
289
290 - XFdrake:
291 o if the EDID gives a valid 16/10 preferred resolution (even if duplicated),

376
377 Version 0.36 - 4 October 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux

402 let Xorg do things automatically) instead of good_default_monitor.
403 (requires monitor-edid 1.12)
404 - fix typo in 0.30: do not use "Automatic" resolution by default in --auto
405
406 Version 0.31 - 25 September 2007, by Thierry Vignaud

426
427 Version 0.27 - 19 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux

446 - do not configure XFS, it's useless
447 - fix default_headers (ie allow XFdrake to create xorg.conf from scratch again)
448 - keep the order from MonitorsDB file
449 (allows "Flat Panel 800x600" to be before "Flat Panel 1024x768")
450 (needs a nicely sorted MonitorsDB though)
451
452 Version 0.23 - 6 September 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux
453
454 - do not start xfs for the test (#33219)

474 - fix detection of touchpad on some kernels (#31584)
475 (need drakxtools-backend >= 10.4.145)
476 - internal: add many options as having to be used only once, easing their use
477 and fixing setting them
478 (eg #31942 where one can't click "Options" after setting EXA)
479 - drop support for installing/configuring 915resolution
480 (no more needed since x11-driver-video-intel 2.0)

496 - add big standard resolutions (4/3, 16/10, 16/9)
497 - [bugfix] fix test message not translated (#30261)
498 - remove all fglrx options, hopefully default is good enough
499 (and at least MonitorLayout option is depreacated as reported on cooker)
500
501 Version 0.17 - 9 May 2007, by Pascal "Pixel" Rigaux
502
