    I never use sleep or hibernate on my laptop, but I might begin using it if ATI fixes those problems. But I'd rather see the AGP fixes and a fix for the 1680x1050 problem, but according to your source those problems will all be solved

    Yes, it will. The lack of FireGL support came down to the implementation of the new fglrx driver -- so future releases should all support the FireGL ASICs but as has been the case, there is about a release every quarter that is "certified" for the workstation usage.

    Cool, the certified 7.12 scrambled the screen on a fresh install of ubuntu.
    I could not read a single line once the desktop is loaded. (on gdm it's fine, and I don't think to have compiz active )

    Has anyone be able to activate composite on a FireGL with 7.12 drivers ? I guess it will not be fixed on 8.01, but opengl overlay is forced to on when a firegl board is detected, what prevents composite to be used.

    Any idea if it is a knwon bug/fix ?
