Thanks for the info. Any improvements? or did they just use the 9.4 release and stick a new version number on it
the composite (kde effects turned on)+xv = lockup bug is fixed!
OpenGL version string: 2.1.8664
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30
well, it can be downloaded... it builds packages... but i'm afraid to install it :E I'll wait for official info + changes ;-)
~amd64, Gentoo Linux,
X.Org X Server 126.96.36.1991 (1.6.2 RC 1)
(un)fortunately I can't reproduce it right now so it should be fine for now
thanks for your support/post mtippett
anyone having the same problem with the "Invert" on kde 4 + opengl compositing that it doesn't work / can't be enabled ?
is this a fglrx & qt or fglrx & opengl problem ? (it also didn't work on 9.4)
(this worked with my 7600 GT before I exchanged it with the HD4850)

Well the only diff i found was:
is now supported. Tearing or vdrift crash on exit with pts is still the same as usual. No 2.6.29+ support, well nobody expected that anyway...
No regressions so far.
The GLSL version is now correctly being reported as 1.30 (with the previous driver it was reported as 1.20). Did catalyst control center have the choice between `box', `narrow-tent', `wide-tent' and `edge-decect' filtering before in Linux? I never payed too much attention to these options but I can't remember seeing them before. Not sure though whether this is new or not...
Well... besides that... glxgears still shuts down with some kind of error (not a biggie). And I can't use an OpenGL forward compatible context in OpenGL 3.0 because that still segfaults the program (I notified AMD about this via the driver feedback page, even offered some example code, but I got no response).
Tomorrow the big test... my other pc that is mostly giving me more problems (dual-head seems to be hard to handle entirely correctly by fglrx).
well, I had lockups reliable with composite+tvtime (using xv). and I haven't had any lockups with the new driver.
