    They should have had X.Org Server 1.14 support months ago.

    Then maybe Ubuntu could have shipped with X.Org Server 1.14 instead of the old version 1.13.

    Ubuntu could not ship the latest X.Org Server due to the AMD driver not supporting it.

    So once again, AMD was holding back the progress of Linux on the desktop.
    You want the goodness of X.Org Server 1.14, well you have to wait another 6 months for the upcoming Ubuntu 13.10 until you can enjoy it, thanks to AMD for stalling it...
    Goodness? To be honest, newer X.Org releases bring nothing. Nothing.

      slow motion effect ... again

      Unfortunately, again the same as the 13.4 ... "slow motion effect" for mouse in 3D applications ... tested on AMD APU E-350 for example on: Xonotic, Couter Strike: Source, etc..

        I had to downgrade to 1.13, the only thing I miss about 1.14 was the edge pressure sensitivity which makes the Gnome system tray work nicely.

          VTs work ? since 13.2beta I don't have VTs on my system (switching to console produces a black screen with no prompt). I went back to 13.1, VTs work, X3:Albion Prelude from Steam does not crash anymore on startup ...

          I don't want to test it myself. I am tired of system stuck/reboots because AMD drivers don't play well ...

            Have you tried running desktop without compositor? Try XFCE without and with its own compositor. The issue could actually be compiz, limiting the onscreen frame rate.

            PS. Use opensource drivers instead.

              openSUSE 12.2

              On openSUSE 12.2 (kernel 3.4.42-2.28, Xorg 1.12.3) they don't compile and give this error:

              Actually I don't install openSUSE 12.3 because I've some unresolved issues with bluetooth on 12.3 (I've tested on another machine).

                Damn that's unfortunate, I get that same problem in Portal.

                  Same problem here, has anyone tested that with the new drivers?

                    It's a bug in the OpenGL driver. It's on Windows, too.

                      Only it is not a matter of the compositor ... I use KDE, and here both in 3d for fullscreen windows and not ... is the same ... at 13.3 beta3 is ideally ... with the beta2 13.3, 13.4 and 13.6 beta are such problems.
