    Just have to wait a week or so...

    Have there been any changes with respect to CCC and the installation procedure (other then just updating packaging scripts and a new ccc version number)?

    Test request - no chance you can see if any major games [hl2, oblivion] supported by wine now "work better"?

    Test request 2 - Savage 2 beta old driver vs new driver comparison

    Test request 3 - comparison of windows vs linux performance with new driver in doom 3 & q4:et
    The only file thing that really changed is fglrx_dri.so is now dead and right now is a dummy file... Other than that, I don't remember any other big file changes.

    Some WINE tests are on the TODO list.

    AA/AF is currently disabled for the R600.

    The only desktop performance problems I have had has been corruption around the mouse and watermark (which you won't have) on one specific R500 GPU. Aside from that, everything has been as smooth as silk.

    Video support is still done with TexturedVideo.

    aticonfig has maintained the Dynamic Display Management Options now for a while.

    The FireGL IDs will be disabled, so you will get no where. AMD just has additional testing they need to go through with their workstation ASICs.

    I recommend Michael to start informing about LINUX KERNELS and not some specific RH/Fedora packages.

    New features, sound nice, but something (history I suppose) tells me it'll suck, just like the other drivers. Especially for us who don't care about Quake FPS, but rather big desktop / RandR 1.2, new kernel support, x86-64 and other rocket science things ATI seems to find hard to acknowledge.

    I'd call this "Script kiddie's FPS goes up"-edition
    x86_64 should work with the Linux 2.6.22. Fedora 7 x86_64 is also fixed!

    ???

    If you use kde, open Konqueror/dolphin filemanager and open folder with large numner of files. It takes more than one second to draw content. This is not happening with avivo driver or Nvidia card in my other comp....

    I dont know, if I missed something or this is "normal desktop performance" for you...

    I don't use KDE so I can't comment for that, but I haven't had any such problems like that with Nautilus and fglrx 8.41.
