5.362. xorg-x11-drv-ati and mesa

Updated xorg-x11-drv-ati and mesa packages that fix a bug and add an enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The xorg-x11-drv-ati packages provide a driver for ATI graphics cards for the X.Org implementation of the X Window System. The mesa packages provide hardware-accelerated drivers for many popular graphics chipsets, and Mesa, a 3D graphics application programming interface (API) compatible with the Open Graphics Library (OpenGL).

Bug Fix

Previously, Mesa did not recognize Intel HD Graphics chipsets integrated into Intel E3-family processors. Consequently, these chipsets provided limited display resolutions and their graphics performance was low. This update adds support for these chipsets. As a result, the chipsets are recognized by Mesa and perform as expected.

All users of xorg-x11-drv-ati and Mesa are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug and add this enhancement.
