    There is also a separate, less frequent stream of releases for the 2000-4000 GPUs :

    http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles...yproducts.aspx

    Phoronix article at :

    Plus the open source drivers, as others have already mentioned.

    Will this driver ever leave beta state? Will there be a version that supports xserver > 1.12? Or newer kernels?

    Ubuntu 12.04 is LTS. You could stick for years with it, if you depend on catalyst...

    And leave out all future developments in software and kernel just because AMD decided that the hardware they still sell as the top of the line integrated video solution for their flagship CPUs is legacy hardware and supported by the OSS driver well enough (which it is unarguably not)?
    Really?

    @bridgman

    When you look at

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/xserver-xorg-core

    Do you notice that u 12.10 uses xserver 1.13? It has nothing to do with legacy or not in that case, there exists no official driver at all! Of course you need updates for "both". But please use control file from 12-4 driver for any update to the 12.6legacy driver (which was in fact 12-5).

    It's not like you won't get software updates at all...

    If your system is running and you stick with your hardware, you won't need the newest kernel to support your hardware.
    Sure, you might miss some features...
    ...but it's not like you are completely stranded. You still have the choice.

    "You still have the choice. "

    yep, and you can still run newer kernels with the generic vesa driver or shadowfb, like I'm doing now, lolololol

    I'm just happy that now it's not only the first generations of radeons that have been sodomized.
