A new versions of Mesa 3D library and Nouveau video drivers are available for AROS.
The major functionality introduced in this release is a full 2D/3D support for selected models from latest nVidia video card family - Fermi (GeForce 400/500 series), putting most powerful rendering capabilities in hands of AROS user.
Other features and improvements: - improved 3D rendering for NV50 series (GeForce 8 and up) - reporting VRAM and GART sizes and free space via SysMon utility - corrected memory allocation problems - improved VRAM->RAM swapping on low memory conditions
Known problems: - rendering regression with Cube/AssaultCube for GeForce 6200 users
The drivers are also available in the latest AROS Nightly Builds
Sadly my hardware isn´t yet supported (AMD-ATI), I am waiting the support for AMD-ATI cards (including the mobile models) to install and support (even financially) AROS on my main system: an HP Pavillion.
