          They did, in the catalyst 12.9 beta they sent to ubuntu.
          But not in the catalyst 12.9 beta on their website.

            Then we now have 2 12.9?
            One just for ubuntu xorg 1.13 and other for everyone?
            The webpage still reling in 1.12 and the ubuntu specific version 1.13. . It is?

            i'm curious to know how gentoo or arch are dealing with this?

              Arch is using the Ubuntu version.

                wasn't it told that they would only release substantial releases? Must've misread that...

                  Gentoo has done both. First their beta, followed by a beta9000 package.

                    Legacy Driver?

                    Any news on pre 5000 legacy branch? Are they are going to make any update to make it available to ubuntu 12.10?

                      The only thing you can do now is downgrade X.org Server to 1.12. Here is the how-to http://www.ubuntuvibes.com/2012/10/h...st-legacy.html

                        this new version has serious troubles here :
                        using ubuntu 12.04 in default unity session with mobility 5870, i have random artefacts along the top menu bar and in unity left menu
                        the artefacts can be forced to show up by moving the mouse
                        it seems there is a thin white border inside windows, like if some feature would be unsupported

                        i noticed neither significative changes nor errors in Xorg.0.log compared to last 12.9beta except addresses changes

                        never seen this bug before

                              The 12.11 Beta is great! Fixes some 2D bugs, re-enables GPU acceleration with Google Chrome and overall works quite well. Also supports Xserver 1.13. Includes a "testing" watermark so make sure to patch that.
