Just want to mention that 2.6.0 is not usable even in 2D on gma950 with
gem/uxa (with exa it's slow in 3D);
and 3D is still unstable in 2.6.1/git master (I still get xserver hang - image
just freezes - after playing a while in any 3D game).
So, IMO, it's unfair to call 2008Q4 release "stable" and "recommended to
ordinary users/OSVs", at least for gma950 users.
