    There is absolutely no problems with the fglrx 8.37 driver pushing back its release... It's all due to the Windows driver and both releases needing to go out on the same day.

    8.37 should be done in April... I think Microsoft didn't give them a WHQL certificate and are testing the new driver 8.37... that's why they want to releae the driver in the middle of the month, to be ready if they don't get a WHQL certificate.

    Oh well, Michaels article will tell.

    Blame Microsoft. 8.37 will be avaible in the next hours / tomorrow.

    Im quite sure this delay is because of R600 and how difficult it seems to be to optimize drivers for it. I really need this driver though as the xv bug, which hopefully has been fixed, is getting quite annoying.

    They are working on 8.38 for some time now, so this is not the reason. The delay was caused by Microsoft, because they had problems with their WHQL Lab.

    Why don't the release notes say anything about Xorg Server 1.3 Support?
