    According to the leaked ATI driver roadmap 8.54 should have been out for a while

    From the Catalyst 8.9 thread:

    Well, guess I was right actually
    I'm really interested in what has been going on there "behind the scenes", hopefully the coming days clear that thing up.
    Maybe ATI is really into public beta testing these days...

    But what's so groundbreaking about this driver other than X Server 1.5 support? I don't see what the big issue is..

    And also, I have to agree with Kano, 3D apps shouldn't have to make workarounds for ATI cards, one 3D rendering command should work for all..

    i hope the ati developers were just trying to get on par with the windowsdrivers, featurewise...
    so they are going to fix all the bugs they created on their way with the future releases...
    otherwise they will go nowhere with their drivers having a lot of features with none working correctly!

    Close. From the RSS feed:
    Linux Proprietary Driver - Catalyst 8.10 Release: x86 and x86_64 variants
    Driver version: 8.542
    NEW FEATURES: (1) AMDTM CAL: Computer Abstraction Layer runtime and libraries support. (2) Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.7
    ISSUES RESOLVED: (1) X startup failure on Radeon X1xxx and later AGP cards. (2) Xserver crash after logging out multiple times. (3) Bad Xv video playback performance on AGP cards. (4) Artefacts left on the screen when quickly moving an Xv video window.
