All recent xf86-video-geodes since 2.11.0 was released have been
maintenance releases, with just enough changes to accommodate ever-
changing header migrations within the X server core using #ifdef.

Occasionally, there's been documentation updates (such as adding items
to a FAQ in the README).

There's also been minor code changes to restore operation on Media GX
(a.k.a. GX2), as that part of the driver has been somewhat rotting and
gradually became non-functional as the X server core evolves. However,
fixing keeps that code takes forever as the number of people with GX2
hardware on which we can test has been shrinking dramatically.

This 2.11.4 release is not different. The documentation improvements
don't touch the code, while the header upgrades are all #ifdef. As for
the GX2 fixes, the diff is minimal.

Mind you, there is a in the pipe that fixes a stupid
1-character typo in one commit for those GX2 fixes. Test packages are
already in my PPA with that fix as a build-time patch and the upstream
release should be pushed out later this week.
