        It may be more than specifications, but that's what I'm most happy about.

            The specifications will include both 2D and 3D, though 2D will be provided first (within the next week or two).

              Holy cr*p!!!!!

              Sounds like the Avivo guys might achieve decent 2D support very quickly now! This would give me something to test until the new fglrx driver supports FireGL. (And afterwards too, of course. But I'll need decent 3D support as soon as possible.)

              Ironically, everyone said that I should have bought a laptop with an NVidia chip instead of one with ATI graphics. It's taken several frustrating months, but I might possibly have bought the right machine after all. AMD, please prove me right...

                Jerome hasn't told me yet, but I am thinking the Avivo driver will end up dissolving into the open-source heaven... The new (yet to be publicly named) driver is already at a state comparable to the Avivo git driver and is being developed aggressively. I hope Jerome would merge his work into this new driver and contribute there instead of maintaining two drivers that are going after the same goals.
