but new code is there right now for the 10-8.--.
you call it basic pipelining
i call it bug-fixing on an feature set parallel to implement new features and parallel fixing bugs in the new feature set.
for every driver version amd try do deliver a feature set and they try to bugfix this feature set and for the next version they have a different feature set and they to to fix this feature-set in parallel.
but yes 10-7 will be a nice (blackwindowsbugfree)driver :-)
