Following the RandR 1.2 integration earlier this week, the RadeonHD v0.0.4 driver has been released. In addition to the RandR 1.2 support from master, RadeonHD v0.0.4 also features LVDS support on RS690 GPUs and later. What this means is that this open-source driver should now properly work with notebooks that use the M72, M74, M76, or RS690 ASICs. This release also includes a large number of fixes and simplification of the connector naming scheme. The RadeonHD v0.0.4 announcement can be found on the mailing list and the code can be checked out (as always) from FreeDesktop.org git.

Update (2007-11-23): In a message from Novell's Luc Verhaegen, he has just informed us that with this RadeonHD v0.0.4 release out the door, they now will begin thinking about pushing out a packaged release soon. Prior to this packaged RadeonHD release, they will be squashing the remaining issues present with this driver. Luc encourages users to try out this latest code and report back about their experience.
