Also, thanks to Stuart Bennett, My LCD panel now uses the same dithering as the binary blob. This means it looks as good with the free driver as with the blob. We're still thinking about how we can work out what bit corresponds to FPDither.
If you are coming to FOSDEM, make sure you add Stephane Marchesin and the other guys in #nouveau to your drinks list.
