    Thanks for the info. Any improvements? or did they just use the 9.4 release and stick a new version number on it

      I say:
      YAY!

      the composite (kde effects turned on)+xv = lockup bug is fixed!
      Also:
      OpenGL version string: 2.1.8664
      OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30

          Well the only diff i found was:

          1002:9495

          is now supported. Tearing or vdrift crash on exit with pts is still the same as usual. No 2.6.29+ support, well nobody expected that anyway...

            well, I had lockups reliable with composite+tvtime (using xv). and I haven't had any lockups with the new driver.

              It seems you are tearing resistant

                No regressions so far.

                The GLSL version is now correctly being reported as 1.30 (with the previous driver it was reported as 1.20). Did catalyst control center have the choice between `box', `narrow-tent', `wide-tent' and `edge-decect' filtering before in Linux? I never payed too much attention to these options but I can't remember seeing them before. Not sure though whether this is new or not...

                Well... besides that... glxgears still shuts down with some kind of error (not a biggie). And I can't use an OpenGL forward compatible context in OpenGL 3.0 because that still segfaults the program (I notified AMD about this via the driver feedback page, even offered some example code, but I got no response).

                Tomorrow the big test... my other pc that is mostly giving me more problems (dual-head seems to be hard to handle entirely correctly by fglrx).

                  they are not new.

                    Video tearing. There's no way to get tear-free video playback when using Catalyst with anything other than the OpenGL renderer and compositing disabled.

                      and I don't see that 'mythical' tearing. I see people complaining, but I don't see it. Never.

                        I wish I had your eyes then, because it's there, and it's annoying as hell :P

                        PS:
                        Or you simply take it for granted because maybe you never saw tear-free video before (Like never having used NVidia or Windows.)

                          I have used nvidia, I have used windows in the past. I don't know what 'tearing' you are talking about.

                            Some people just don't see tearing. Others hardly notice anything *but* the tearing.

                            It's fun to watch when you get one of each type standing in front of a test system watching video.

                              I see the difference between a 75Hz and a 85Hz crt. But tearing? Nope.
