Hei Yaroslav!

Now that's a fantastic news.

The only package in the upcomming Ubuntu that is not up to date enough is
xserver-xorg-video-intel. I am going to ping the Ubuntu guys to see if
they can confirm/infirm is the intel bug has vanished in the upcoming
ubuntu, and if not we'll try to update this package.

Thanks a lot for the info,
