they added the required OpenGL extension "GL_EXT_texture_sRGB_decode".
But this means that this is rather a feature update than a mere bugfix release (which is good actually).
So why AMD refuses to add support for new xservers?
That would add so much value to those HD4000 cards.
Maybe that's exactly the problem...
Read the article and was jumping for joy till I read the comments... :cool:;):confused::rolleyes::(:mad:
Hmm. Well, I never expected that kind of Spanish Inquisition... err, I mean, update for legacy fglrx. But yea, it doesn't seem to be that important, and in my case it's too late, as I just yesterday bought a new graphics card for my main pc, and the current one is doing well enough for HTPC use cases with r600g regardless.
There is a new legacy (13.9) Catalyst available supporting Windows Vista and up [Radeon HD 2k-4k series].
However, I guess we won't see another legacy Catalyst for this generation on Linux.
How well is the recent FOSS driver performing on these ASICs compared to the latest legacy release?
Rather well for anything i tested. What's the point of sticking to the old fglrx cruft ?
