It's over 24 hours now since the fglrx 8.42.3 download link
first surfaced and we shared the great news with you that 8.42 delivers on AIGLX and other improvements
. However, the AMD website still hasn't been updated for this new Linux driver. Though the AMD Proprietary Linux Release Notes
for 8.42.3 is now accessible.
The new features mentioned in the release notes include support for AIGLX, X.Org 7.3, products older than the R600 now being enabled, and a new 3D user interface in the ATI Catalyst Control Center Linux Edition. These notes also mention four resolved issues, which include stuttering with TexturedVideo, Composite extension corruption, segmentation faults with AGP cards, and various error messages from the SuSE 10.2 RPMs. There are six known issues mentioned as well.
As usual, the release notes aren't the best and most detailed so check out our 8.42.3 driver review
and the Phoronix Forums
(especially this thread
) for the full scoop.
