AMD Catalyst 12.6 Beta improvements?
I tried searching for a changelog for this catalyst release , (since it is a a bump from 8.961 to 8.98) and couldnt find any... apart from the new watermark is there anything new?
Gnome 3 finally looks really stable right now in Catalyst 12.6.... is there any work going into xvba too?
XServer 1.12 is still broken
we (Debian) just wanted to upload the fixed xserver 1.12 driver to Debian, but yeah the x 1.12 support is....:

... simply not working at all (on amd64 only maybe?)..............
3.4 and xserver 1.12 working on arch
not sure if this is debian specific problem, because archlinux maintainer of catalyst has reported success with 3.4 Kernel as well as Xserver 1.12 .. but it looks like he is using a hack to make it compatible with kernel 3.4, not sure again because i have seen users within Phoronix forums reporting Ubuntu 12.04 with 3.4 kernel working with catalyst 12.6
