After a quiet couple of days, I want to get the bug fixes we have
accumulated shipped. Thank you everybody for your invaluable testing and

We are pleased to announce this major release of the xf86-video-intel
driver, roughly on schedule at 3 months since 2.14.0. With the many bug
fixes in this release, we encourage everyone to upgrade to 2.14.

The priority for this quarter has been simply to be unexciting and stabilise
the driver further, seeking to capitalise upon the improvements elsewhere
in the stack.

Bugs fixed in this snapshot (compared to 2.14.903)

* Turn off relaxed fencing by default for older chipsets
  This was continuing to destabilize those system, so for the release
  we disabled the feature. If you wish to help us debug this, you can
  re-enable the optimisation with Option "RelaxedFencing" "True".
  Bugzilla: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36147

* Build fix for xserver-1.7.7

* KDE glitches on SNB
  [Technically fixed in the previous snapshot, but I'm really pleased
   that this got fixed in time for the release!]
