    8.40.
    But IF they are working on this new OpenGL implementation, they could at LEAST give some feedback or information.

    I want my AIGLX. It's not like AIGLX was created yesterday. nVidia has support for it for a LONG LONG time... Enough to implement the features on the old OpenGL drivers. Of course if they have a new one now, it's not productive to waste time implementing AIGLX support on both OpenGL drivers, but they could have done it before.

    Also, we don't have any real information on when will it come. It's all speculation.

    They shouldn't even waste time releasing useless bugged drivers, and instead concentrate on this new OpenGL implementation.

    Well, I'll get back to work. I do follow a schedule to release my projects and it's features, and I do keep my clients informed.

      I hope the leaves don't knock out my power or Internet lines this fall...

      By the way, the "new" 8.39.4 is now out: http://www.phoronix.com/?page=news_item&px=NTkxNw

        Hehehe... We do appreciate all your help and effort Michael, but this kind of information should come directly from ATI/AMD.

        But thanks for everything...

          AMD is a publicly traded company and is only allowed by regulations to make such announcements through formal channels (i.e. press release).

            Fall for some people is july-september, but I guess you are talking about october-december. If it just comes out this year, I'm happy. But a release before Ubuntu 7.10 would be wonderful.

              I got more that 10% increase of FPS on a certain /timedemo I'm running on a heavy mod on ioquake3. 53.1-53.3 for the last several releases, now 60.1. I re-installed the old driver to make sure it isn't another library changing but nothing changed, 53 on the last one, 60 on the new.

              I didn't expect that.

                  I could only explain this with the new OpenGL application file, but Michael said it is just preparation work. But when the new OpenGL is in, I think you will not get 60 FPS but 100 FPS if you look at how bad fglrx works in comparison with the Windows driver.

                    X still segfaults on loading on Fedora 7 x86_64.
                    Endless shame on AMD.
