Overdue ? The 6.13 release was scheduled to coincide with KMS moving out of kernel staging AFAIK, and that only happened in 2.6.33.
No proper releases in a year is what most sane people would call overdue. And there is no real excuse for it either. What this whole charade graphically shows, is that the "developers" are singularly unsuited to the task.
And all the crap that you spout, Mr Bridgman, is only adding to the widespread view that the radeon driver has been hijacked by idiots, with the full knowledge and complicity of AMD.
I second that, some of the folks developing the OSS driver for ATI hang out here and they are not only very talented, but also cool people. And they do this, for me, for free. Bridgman is also a nice person, always informative. I have nothing but respect for all those people, and my graphics money goes to Intel and AMD for supporting Open Source.
I had to get that out, although I promised myself earlier in my life not to feed the trolls !
