    Direct2D acceleration have great speed. maximizing window is now instantly.
    but it is has artefacts in picture. and some glitches.
    when i turn off compiz it get slow as hell. redraw screen took 2 second.

      Well at least they de-uglified the Catalyst Control Center by finally making it use GTK2 (or did they do that in a previous version, not sure).
      And I can finally start new X session (also since previous version I believe).

      But blur is still horribly broken.

        Really? Now every time I open a window, Compiz will crash.
        Any workarounds for that?

              Yeah it is. My bad :P

              I'd rather have Motif, if only the actual driver worked.

                  Close all windows and try again (Alt+F2: compiz --replace). It will work. Until you open a new window.

                    Okay, resolved quake4 issue! lib32-catalyst-utils under arch is working with a slight modification. Seems like the driver is now linked with libatiuki, and that's what quake4 was missing, along with other 32 bit games under 64bit.

                    (http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=24824)

                    Will stick with this driver on a second thought now that 32bit apps are okay. Wanna test direct2d, will check it soon.

                      Really? How can AMD/ATI seriously release a *another* new driver without support for xserver 1.7x? Maybe the devs need a new coffee machine or something to get them in gear?!

                        New features in this release:
                        - no more Compiz !
                        - ability to hard freeze the kernel
                        - decrease that pesky performance

                        Coming up next in 10.3:
                        - X server will not work at all (who needs it anyway right?)
                        - hard freeze the kernel automatically!
                        - deprecate acceleration, forward everything to CPU

                          It's not just doing it with the 2D acceleration enabled...literally everytime I try to run compiz it crashes, at the 2d rendering in metacity is a joke....You know I can deal with a buggy driver....but seriously, this driver isn't just inconvenient with a couple of annoyances...it has completely obliterated my X. I have just reinstalled 10.1 because on top of everything essentially being broken, it kept locking up my screen without giving me any control, not even Sysrq commands.....In a just world these "professional" developers would owe me a new hard drive and and brand new nvidia card

                            It's funny, because I have never seen an opensource development effort put something like this out except with the warning that its bleeding edge and for testers only...thanks for the warning ATI...

                              I've lost all hope in fglrx.

                              What's the status on the opensource driver for HD 4870? Have they got rid of all the 3D issues yet?

                                I have no idea, I'm on a 3 month old 5770, so their is now hope in the near future for me....I'm considering selling it off at half price at this point
