OK. Things seem to be more or less working now. Over the next week or so
I'll be finishing and checking in code for the following:
- Array (rather than vertex) based dma of vertex data. This will probably
help q3 performance.
- Fast code for immediate (begin/vertex/end) mode rendering.
Until then, people who are interested should feel free to check the code out
and have a play. I don't expect it to be too robust yet, but bug reports are
Anybody doing development on the Radeon (hi Michael, Ian, others) should
probably work off this codebase as it is somewhat divergent from what's on the
trunk in terms of the way state is managed. I'd very much hope to get this
stabilized and merged sooner rather than later.
A big thanks to ATI for allowing us to release this code and to Tungsten
Graphics for having the vision to persue it.
