Hopefully all the awful bugs of the 9.3 catalyst linux driver are fixed. Especially this horrible problem when a HD TV is plugged into the graphics card via HDMI ... The whole X-Server crashes when using 9.3 or earlier releases.
Moreover this terrible tearing is starting to get on my nerves. Hopefully also that is fixed.
The tearing with Xv has already been explained. Don't remember the details (if you search for it on the forums it should pop up) but it has something to do with the overlay block being on the 3D engine which does not provide vsync functionality for Xv. The workaround would have to be implemented in the driver itself which I guess is harder than it seems. I could be remembering things wrong thought.
This would be acceptable if it were possible for my graphics card to use XV with compiz enabled without killing X ...
They are doing a lot of work in the composite area. Something is bound to break eventually, but it will get fixed. I thought everyone wanted non-blinking videos and opengl games, and fast acceleration with composite managers?
