Phoronix: xf86-video-ati 6.13.0 X.Org Driver Released
It's been over a year since the last major release of the ATI X.Org driver, xf86-video-ati 6.12.0, but today the xf86-video-ati 6.13.0 driver has finally replaced this open-source ATI graphics driver...
It is really interesting that lucid is the primary target for final releases now. For 10-4 fglrx and even for the oss driver Ubuntu is privileged, Fedora (and others) only got git snapshots for long time - even when a dev works for Red Hat.
Yeah; if anything this is timed better for Fedora 13 than it is for Lucid, since Lucid is about a week from final freeze while final freeze is still a month off for Fedora. I doubt that it was specifically targeted to any distro's release cycle, though. I would expect that the main concern is that the relevant ioctls are mostly frozen and in mainline before making a "real" release.
