      ok my observations:
      - it builds without patching with the 2.6.24-rc3 kernel
      - the control center works now
      - some apps still hang (including the control center) when they are the first program that talks to the driver
      - compiz still doesn't work with xserver 1.4 (but I don't need that)

      Overall I'm happy with this release. It installed flawlessly even on the latest kernel, that hang thing doesn't bug me that much and I can live without compiz.

        Could some say something about the AIGLX performance?

          The person who renamed the driver from 8.433 to 7-11 AFTER packageing must be an idiot. Now I have to rename the version in my script from 7-11 to 8.433 after extracting. If someone wants to rename the driver fine, but then package it with the same name! Usually the script could use -v VER but in that case you need special handling, that makes the option useless - or you have to parse the real name which is used by the packages.

              New thread would be much better.

              Regarding how many developers are working on the Linux driver now, that number is confidential. (FYI, they are hiring new developers though)

                    what about rest of common bugs: flickering, compiz choking ?
