AMD 8.40.4 Driver Released -- One Bug A Day Keeps AIGLX Away

First off, congratulations to Yoshi with the extremely creative Phoronix codename for this release. The fglrx 8.40 driver (a.k.a. "One Bug A Day Keeps AIGLX Away") has been released but with not much changes. There is now a 64-bit AMDCCCLE, some TV-out options, and a couple of bug fixes. But there isn't much more beyond that.

I guess the good news coming out of this is that you now have a better idea when the new driver will come now that another month has passed... 8.41, 8.42, 8.43, or 8.44.

As always, the Phoronix review: http://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=10789

Today the fglrx 8.40.4 driver has been released and while many had speculated the 8.40 series would mark the introduction of the new Linux driver code-base, that's not the case for 8.40.4 driver. What changes does the 8.40.4 driver hold in store for Linux users? We'll tell you today but there isn't much.
