Support for newer Intel drivers?

The currently fglrx version only works with xf86-video-intel version 2.20.2-2, which is incompatible with the current Xorg server 1.13 and requires that I use Xorg 1.12 instead. I'd rather not downgrade as that is rather messy for a rolling release distribution, and the Sandy Bridge is more than quick enough for my day-to-day computing.

 

What I would like to know is will there be a new release soon that supports a newer version of xf86-video-intel (which is currently at 2.20.15)? or will the next stable release be closer to the next release of a stable distro like Ubuntu?

 

It would of course be nice to see it sooner rather than later, but I'll take a stable driver over an early one.

 

Thanks,
