Latest? for your distro? from git? From the official packages? ;)

It is well known glxgears is *not* a suitable benchmark. Don't base your
perception on those results.
However, I will quote www.phoroniix.com:
"The Intel Linux graphics driver is simply not in a state to perform well with
3D acceleration atop its Mesa driver."
The 3D performance is *terrible* on my 945GM even though it has improved a lot
in the last year.
It seems there have been many improvements in the 2.12 version of the driver
as well as the DRI2 implementation in the Xorg server...
By the way: keep up the good work developers!
