AMD Catalyst 14.6 Beta Driver Coming Soon To Linux
The first beta release of the Catalyst 14.6 proprietary Linux graphics driver will soon be available.
The Catalyst 14.6 Linux driver will introduce official Ubuntu 14.04 LTS support, install improvements by having better defaults and prompting to auto-install the packages generated by the driver, and various bug-fixes are landing.
There is not yet any word on Linux 3.15 / X.Org Server 1.16 support; it's possible we could see Linux 3.15 support, but probably not for another month or so... Based upon the past timing of xorg-server support, it's probably unlikely to see support for this not-yet-stable X.Org Server in Catalyst 14.6.
More information on the Catalyst 14.6 Linux beta that will be released in the days ahead can be found via this forum thread where the details are already being discussed by Phoronix readers.
