Previously we reported on the Revenge utility
being developed by Oliver McFadden for reverse-engineering the ATI fglrx binary display driver. Today marks the first release of the Revenge utility as it has reached version 1.0
. This isn't a bug free release but Oliver hopes it will ship with some distributions to help in the reverse-engineering process and turn more Linux users to free software drivers. As you may recall from an earlier news post, Oliver McFadden is also working on developing an open-source video BIOS
for at least one ATI graphics card.
