Committed to the xf86-video-radeonhd driver this morning has been another series of fixes and other improvements for this open-source AMD R500/600 driver. Some memory leaks in the driver have been fixed, ConnectorTable is now known as ConnectorInfo, the AtomBIOS test code was removed now that the AtomBIOS parser is working, compiler complaint fixes, and other changes are now in the git tree. If you're running the RadeonHD driver now, be sure to update and if you're not but are running R500/600 hardware, be sure to check out the git and let the RadeonHD developers know how it's working for you.
