    I fully agree.

    I am wondering the same. ( if amd is willing )
    I do know however croteam, and Valve are talking with amd.

    But like the guy from croteam said, it seems that amd has other priorities.

    And a topic why nobody is responding....

    I just wonder, if AMD is reading this forum sometime or not.

    http://devgurus.amd.com/thread/160548
    As suggested by bridgman I registered for this forum and I already regret it. It is lost time as no devs answers anything. It is the same c r a p as the "unofficial" bugtracker that never got responses.

    How to get rid of customers ?

    Not to nitpick, but did I actually suggest you register there ?

    I guess I might have but I don't remember doing so...

    ... but I'm *highly* confident I didn't suggest you register there and just file generic complaints about lack of response.

    (scratches head)

    Are you maybe quoting text from Kano's post but without indicating that it's a quote ?

    If you click the links I posted, you can see, who said that Bridgman told him to register there.

    I did not want to copy the entire topic, so I picked one line from the link I posted.
    Sorry for the confusion.

    Both those links are not to topics I started.
    It's about people asking why amd is not responding.

    In my case it was Croteam, who told me to report the bug, on that forum.

    So I did, and have not received any reply in over a month now.
    My topic:

    AMD forum now open
    AMD has opened a new forum (http://devgurus.amd.com/community/steam-linux) for those of you using Linux AMD graphics drivers. The purpose of the AMD forum is to provide a direct line to AMD for feedback on their graphics drivers.
    Currently before you can post you will need to create a new AMD forum account and request access to the forum. Currently, the forum is private but that will change to public very soon.
    In case you are wondering, we will continue monitoring this forum for AMD-related issues with Steam for Linux.
    Thanks!

    Any "insider information" when we see a new Catalyst release?
    The last official driver is now 3 month old and there are plenty of
    bugs waiting to be fixed despite the (very welcome) beta releases.

    When we are already at it, any information when (if?) we will see a new release for the legacy Catalyst, maybe one that supports xorg-server 1.13?

    You mean 1.14?
    xorg-server 1.13 is supported since Catalyst 13.1.
