The ATI 6.6.191 display driver has been released. No no, not the fglrx blob but instead a new release for the open-source ATI Radeon display driver. The ATI 6.6.191 release is a driver in the path to the ATI v6.7.0. The 6.6.191 driver contains major rewrites of the output subsystem and other changes. RandR 1.2 code will be merged with the ATI Radeon driver once X.Org 7.3 is out. The release announcement can be found at FreeDesktop.org.
