Well, I've been following the FreeBSD graphics page for 2-3 years now and
from what I can tell it's been updated basically once per year and with
very little/slow progress.

Don't get me wrong, I am not criticizing the developers. They are doing a
great job, much more than I ever could. However, from what I see,
development seems to more or less have stopped. Maybe it is because there
was a lot of preparation work that is less visible?...

Anyway, I wish the foundation would support the graphics team by sponsoring
this development...
