        The website still shows 9.5, and does the new driver have 2.6.29/30 support?

          No because who needs it? ATI is still in time where 2.6.10 is out.

            I know, I am using the Open Source drivers anyway, but I am just curious.

              It seems AMD is aware of that. Catalyst 9.6 isn't even available for download yet.

                oh no, the worst issue ever:
                "System may stop responding when running Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory"

                so even if i can have 3D on a 780g with the driver, i might not be able to use it for the only true reason

                  Enough is enough. Tomorrow, I buy a NVIDIA card for my mediacenter. I'm tired of waiting for an XvBA interface that will never come out. Never more ATI

                    2.6.30 support..... WHY?
                    that would be supporting a new kernel WAY head of schedule.
                    why not wait until people get angry and go and buy nvidia.
                    then we'll really have a reason to improve
