    Hey, "Ubuntu 9.10 production support"! L33t!

    Only this new feature is listed. And indeed it's a much needed one. I mean, we didn't have fglrx in Ubuntu 9.10 till now.

    Wow! AMD. The awesomeness is indeed breathtaking.

    It's out yes, with broken packageing as ati is too stupid to update it when it is fixed lots of weeks ago. Will add a hotfix later, currently those who like to use my script should use the latest version of it and -uv10-1 option.

    AMD/ATI never ceases to disappoint.
    Sorry, Bridgman.

    Where's the improved 2D performance ATI was touting about? I don't see it.

    Also:

    Code:
    (II) ATI Proprietary Linux Driver Build Date: Dec 11 2009 14:56:29
    This driver is almost 2 months old.

    It's not EXA or anything like it. Something else entirely.

    Are they kidding us? The 9.12 hotfix is newer than 10-1. I'm not even going to install this version but continue to use 9.12 hotfix with the old control and signature files.

    And to play a nice joke, December 11th... 2 months they have just been neglecting their driver. April fools only occurs on the first of April, but ATI/AMD has managed to play this game with us every month.

    EDIT: I'm really beginning to think ATI is using a primitive version control system. With git, they could have easily merged the new bits from the Catalyst 9.12 hot fix without any confusing code conflicts. What are they using, notepad with cut and paste? nVidia mentioned their use of Perforce, which I believe Linux was developed on until Linus developed git, maybe ATI should switch to one of the two?

    But honestly, something must be very wrong at the company if they have to test the _built_ version (not even merging minor fixes) of their module for 2 months. Most development processes allow for the incremental merging of bug/security fixes up until the last date (release candidate or feature freeze style), where it's usually built one last time and shipped the same day.

    Am I wrong? Could someone explain why this couldn't be a bad thing?
