    major advancement?
    YAWN

    I bet it's hardware acceleration that we've all had for months on nvidia.

    If that's the case, then consider me excited.

    contains a major advancement too, which will be exposed in the near future
    I know what it is. Since AMD won the deal to do the GPU for the XBox 720, they have added support for the GPU now, and Microsoft will allow Linux to run natively on the hardware.

    That was an easy one to guess

    The version in Ubuntu 9.10 is an earlier version of the code specifically for Ubuntu; the Catalyst 9.10 driver should contain additional changes.

    Try the 32-bit link. Unless something's changed, it's the same download for both architectures.
