  • "DONE" means that it is implemented and relatively bug-free.
  • "MOSTLY" means that it is implemented but has some known bugs.
  • "WIP" means that someone has started on the initial implementation.
  • "BIOS" means only if supported by your BIOS. No software support. Yet.
  • "SLOW" means that the feature is implemented and bug-free, but slow. Improvements may or may not be planned.
  • "STALLED" means that whatever code has been written is accumulating color and texture similar to that 3 week old slice of pizza in your fridge.
  • "N/A" means that the feature is not supported by the hardware.
  • "N/N" means that the feature will not be implemented, because a better alternative is or will be available.
  • "TODO" means that someone needs to write the code. The required knowledge to write the code may or may not be known. Please ask on #radeon/#radeonhd if you want to get your feet wet on this.
  • "UNKNOWN" means that the current status of this item isn't known. You are free to update it if you know.
