Well, OK, some history:

1) April 2008: VIA decides to change something: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=via_oss&num=1

2) May 2008: VIA publishes framebuffer code (that was fast!) http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=NjQ2Nw

3) December 2008: Chrome 9 DRM http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Njk1NQ

So it took half a year to release DRM code for Chrome 9 and for last
(next) half a year we didn't get any news.

AFAIK VIA decided to work on openChrome rather than it's own driver (finally). But did we see any commits from them? Any bug resolving? I'm afraind I didn't notice anything.

The last big change for VIA GPUs was creating new DRM "openchrome" module and openchrome Mesa driver. But this was done by Thomas, is he working for VIA actually? I couldn't find that information.
