Exploring ZX Spectrum Next's new features

a project by wstephenson

Back in the day, I enjoyed coding on 8 bit machines, mostly MSX. There is now a Kickstarted project to create a successor machine with some new features: hardware sprites, hardware scrolling, better sound, integrated SD/MMC IO and an ESP8266 for networking. I will be spending HackWeek 0x10 exploring these new features via Z80 assembly.

Create a DRM driver for Matrox desktop cards

an invention by tdz

(was: Create a DRM driver for Matrox G200) Even after 20 years, the Matrox G200 series is still an excellent 2d graphics card. Unfortunately, there's only an fbdev driver and a user-space driver. Both are obsolete, as modern Linux uses the DRM framework for managing graphics cards. There already is a DRM driver for the G200 server series. This driver is under-maintained and doesn't work with desktop chips.
