SiS’s lack of driver updates is becoming frustrating

It’s not like it’s a huge issue, but the lack of driver updates from SiS (Silicon Integrated Systems) is becoming a little annoying. I have a SiS M672MX graphics chipset in my laptop which hasn’t been updated by SiS in nearly 6 months, which I find a little bit of a pain. I mean, the card works fine and I have no problems with it in XP or Vista, but don’t you think I would at least here some news or something for SiS?

My main PC uses an ATI Radeon card, and I almost can’t keep up with the updates that ATI release for the card. They seem to release a new driver once a month (sometimes even more often) which is more than enough.

I’m not sure whether to think that there are no updates for the chipset because it just doesn’t need them or because SiS can’t be bothered to update it.

And it’s not just my card that isn’t being updated. In fact, (at the time of writing) the last update issued was on the 2nd of October 2008. I’m not complaining, but it just makes me feel a little neglected. SiS seem to rarely ever update their website, and it just gets to the point where its just a teeny bit annoying.

I might get in contact with SiS and find out some sort of reasoning as to why there’s been very little news from SiS.

WordPress 2.7 Beta 2 Out Now

The WordPress Developement have released beta 2 of WordPress 2.7 with a long list of updates and bug fixes.

I’m not going to test it on my server because I don’t think there’s a huge amount of updates from a visual perspective.

Anyhow, if you want to see what’s been done, head over to http://wordpress.org/development/2008/11/wordpress-27-beta-2/

You can also grab a copy there or from your Admin itself.

Don’t forget the final release is due on the 10th 🙂
