So where exactly is the new 6.13 ddx driver for radeon that was promised some weeks ago ?
Don't bother with any more stalling tactics and bare-faced lies : I want a definite release date, and I want it now.
No more excuses : give a DEFINITE RELEASE DATE.
Exactly where are these promises you talked about.
All I can find is this a phoronix a few weeks ago:
And, frankly, I'm not sure anyone really gives a shit what you want. No offense, of course.In response to an inquiry, AMD's Alex Deucher has responded. "Now that 2.6.33 is out we'll be rolling a KMS-capable radeon release. I just haven't had time to get to it yet. Hopefully next week."
And maybe you should take a look at the GPL license sometime.

The X.org license is a slightly modified version of the MIT license, which in turn is based on the BSD license but without the advertising restrictions. BSD, MIT and X.org are all *very* open licenses which basically say "do what you want with the code but don't sue us if it doesn't work".
GPL, on the other hand, is a "copyleft" license which places more restrictions on anyone using the code, particularly the requirement that any changes to the code be made available in source form if you distribute the modified code in any form.
The X.org / MIT / BSD licenses allow relicensing to GPL (which is why X.org-licensed code is allowed in the Linux kernel even though it has not actually *been* relicensed) while the GPL license does *not* allow relicensing to X.org or any similar license. X.org and similar licenses also allow the code to be used in proprietary systems without restriction, while GPL licenses generally do not allow use in proprietary systems unless there are specific exceptions added to the license.
