    not yet, no. The release notes are always uploaded a bit later in my experience. I don't think they will be available in the next 12-24h

    but the driver package is a lot bigger than previous ones. 89mb instead of 85mb of 9.5 or 83 of 9.4, 81 of 9.3, 80 of 9.2, 79 of 9.1

    EDIT: The 2.6.29 patch still applies "cleanly".

    EDIT2:
    GL_VERTEX_SHADER_ARB:
    GL_MAX_VERTEX_UNIFORM_COMPONENTS_ARB = 1024
    GL_MAX_VARYING_FLOATS_ARB = 64
    GL_MAX_VERTEX_ATTRIBS_ARB = 16
    GL_MAX_TEXTURE_IMAGE_UNITS_ARB = 16
    GL_MAX_VERTEX_TEXTURE_IMAGE_UNITS_ARB = 16
    GL_MAX_COMBINED_TEXTURE_IMAGE_UNITS_ARB = 16
    GL_MAX_TEXTURE_COORDS_ARB = 16
    GL_FRAGMENT_SHADER_ARB:
    GL_MAX_FRAGMENT_UNIFORM_COMPONENTS_ARB = 1024
    GL_MAX_TEXTURE_COORDS_ARB = 16
    GL_MAX_TEXTURE_IMAGE_UNITS_ARB = 16
    yay!

    Just so you understand why we aren't spending all our time on the newest kernels, we have a number of workstation customers running on RHEL 4.7 which AFAIK uses a modified 2.6.9 kernel. No that is not a typo. Yes we have to support it.

    What does that have to do with 2.6.29 and 2.6.30 which have been i rc for a few weeks. If Nvidia can do it so can AMD.

    What bridgeman is saying is that their dev team is inferior I think...

    (nothing like a little banter to get some devs going...)

    I mean come on 2.6.29 isn't even current now.

    And we don't care if you have to support guys on RHEL 4.7. Thats your stupid agreements you made with them. Now aren't AMD at the forefront of technology? Or at least supposed to be?
