Considering the involvement of AMD in the OpenGL 4.0 spec (just looking through the OpenGL registry shows it) it's not surprising they have internal builds running 4.0, but it's very welcome to see it released.
It took me an extra h to figure out what goes wrong with the Ubuntu packageing. I really hate when i have to correct those errors myself. 10-3 was simple, but that is unneeded extra time. When i would get ati hardware for every h i need to spend debugging what goes wrong my room would have been completely filled i guess...
As I understand it, AMD's plan is to release 1.7 compatible drivers as soon as all of the major distributions have upgraded to 1.8.
Than you understand it wrong. AMD has an List of Supported Distribution. Ubuntu is the first that start to ship the X-Server 1.7 with 10.04 and AMD release for Ubuntu an beta Driver. And i bet in 06.2010 or 07.2010 we see 1.7 Support in the "Normal" CCC Release.
