I just saw that xf86-video-intel 2.7.0 was released, on intellinuxgraphics.org.

Will this be released for Ubuntu through the Synaptics manager?

How does it work, does Canonical need to do some voodoo to get it to run?

I have a problem in setting my display resolutions so I reverted back to 2.4.0, but I'm willing to try the new one and see if solves my issues.

...aaand it didn't work.

Found some instructions which I tried out to upgrade to 2.7.0, but no good...

Is X still controlling the display resolutions? How can I set those in that case?
