Last month Alex Deucher pushed out the xf86-video-ati 6.7.195 driver, which is another release candidate before the 6.8 release for this open-source ATI graphics driver. The ATI 6.7.196 release includes a few Radeon fixes, specifically for cursor-related hangs, LVDS fixes, support for new DDC type, and BIOS/dock/LVDS hardware state fixes. The xf86-video-ati 6.7.196 driver release announcement can be read on the X.Org mailing list. As was mentioned during the last RC release, the 6.8.0 driver will be released once all of the sub-drivers are ported to using PCI rework.
