      Everyone. They didn't put the drivers there yet. Why is this always happening with the Linux drivers though, never with the Windows ones?

      The release notes are there though.

        Yeah, I'm getting one too. I guess links haven't been properly updated yet. Should be available latter on though.

            There isn't that much different anyway from what I could tell during testing. Probably the biggest change was that composition was working again . Maybe a few extra OpenGL bugfixes here and there.

              You guys should open the 10.3 for Windows release notes and read them, just to get an impression of what "new and improved" looks like

                  And I thought you were just being sarcastic... The download link doesn't even work, that's how "new and improved" the new catalyst drivers are. Maybe we're lucky and in 2 years the open-source drivers will surpass the proprietary ones.

                    but they already do, if you're looking at the right benchmarks


                    It's taken a while for the actual download links to appear for the last few releases, too. The translations for the download pages are sometimes off, too (showing different release numbers etc). I guess nobody feels responsible for it.

                          I see no special "great" support for Fire Pro, the OpenGL stack is a bit faster for workstation apps which usually nobody uses there. Interestly the new Heaven benchmark is a bit faster with that too (no idea how much faster on high performance hardware, on low perfermance about 10%).

                              The big thing I'd care about is that, on the previous drivers, I would periodically get hangs -- system would be fine under the hood, but the video card would wedge completely, and 'aticonfig' would report that the GPU was 99% in use, even though nothing was using it anymore.

                              Any clue whether that's likely to have been fixed? If it were gone, I'd get in some ways better behavior from using the ATI card and drivers, but as long as it's there, it makes the card sorta unusable.
