    I have not seen a public announcement, but here is a link to what seems to be version 9.7:

    However, it is certainly wise to wait for the official announcement.

    Edit: And here are the release notes:

        Windows drivers came out yesterday for Vista and Windows 7. Have been trying to download this all day long (replacing the 6 of 9-6 with a 7), so it is less than 2 hours online now.

        So should be okay to download it. New driver was also announced on the at play blog on AMD's website.

                Tried to create a OpenGL 3.1 context and this is what I got:

                OpenGL version: 3.1.8787 BETA Forward-Compatible Context

                Nice .

                GLSL version still reports 1.30 though...

                  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!? hahahahahhaha. Nice job AMD, brilliant.

                  AMD better be hoping for open-source drivers to get 3d and become stable soon, because their linux drivers blow.

                    Let's hope that this is because they put all their effort in the opensource drivers.
