Improve Direct Rendering Infrastructure

Summary

The Direct Rendering Infrastructure (DRI) was written ~10 years ago and its feature set was based on the graphics cards' capabilities at that time. It is time to update the infrastructure to take advantage of today's graphics cards' capabilities. DRI2 enables several new features including:

  • Accelerated rendering to offscreen pixmaps
  • Support for GLXFBConfigs
  • Support for Pbuffers and Framebuffer Objects (FBOs)
  • Software cursors and DRI are now compatible - great for MPX
