    Good release for me so far (Radeon HD 3850 here). Totem has finally nicely scaled video and thanks to

    "Clock Gating is now supported and enable under the Linux operating system. Further details can be found in topic number 737-35191"

    my idle desktop systems is now consuming ~67 Watt instead of ~72 Watt (measured at the wall plug, complete system without monitor). This means that power saving is now as good as on Windows.

    edit: Just for those who wonder what system this is:
    - Athlon 64 X2 5200+ (65nm, rated with 65W TDP)
    - Asus M3A Mainboard (AMD 770 chipset)
    - Radeon 3850 256MB
    - 4 Gig of RAM
    - Ubuntu 8.04 x86_64
