Intel-dri- where did this come from?

Hello,

Just did a pacman -Syu and it gave me a driver I havn't seen before called intel-dri.

Just wondering where this came from and why it wasnt available before. What hole is it filling and was that hole there before?

Thanks

That is part of the hardware acceleration for your Intel graphics.  DRI=Direct Rendering Infrastructure.

I see that. I'm wondering why I'm only getting it now. I didn't install it intentially; it was included in my most recent upgrade. Why wasn't it included in previous upgrades?

I believe that's part of the reshuffling of the mesa split PKGBUILD.
