    gl2benchmark is a no longer maintained tool though...

      i guess that's the end of the line in amd's beta catalyst program for canonical. i suspect ati's going to be pretty angry about this.

      unless they changed their beta policy.

        The source is there, everybody can add new features. And it just works the way it is.

          I bet that was a co-ordinate move.

            Also I see no reason why the tool should get ATI extra workarounds, it worked before it has to work now!

              I bet in a few hours there will be a news on the main page called:

              ATI CATALIST 8.10 RELEASED

              (Once michael gets UVD working :P)

                  According to the leaked ATI driver roadmap 8.54 should have been out for a while

                    From the Catalyst 8.9 thread:

                    I'm really looking forward to the upcomming 8.10 driver, hoping I'll get XServer 1.5 support on my birthday (15th Oct 08)
                    Well, guess I was right actually
                    I'm really interested in what has been going on there "behind the scenes", hopefully the coming days clear that thing up.
                    Maybe ATI is really into public beta testing these days...

                      But what's so groundbreaking about this driver other than X Server 1.5 support? I don't see what the big issue is..

                      And also, I have to agree with Kano, 3D apps shouldn't have to make workarounds for ATI cards, one 3D rendering command should work for all..

                          i hope the ati developers were just trying to get on par with the windowsdrivers, featurewise...
                          so they are going to fix all the bugs they created on their way with the future releases...
                          otherwise they will go nowhere with their drivers having a lot of features with none working correctly!

                                Note that it's 8.542 and not 8.543.
