The distributions now officially supported by the Catalyst 9.6 Linux driver is SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 and early Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.8 support. MultiView has previously been available to enterprise users with FireGL workstation graphics cards, but this support has now been extended to the Radeon series. This MultiView consumer support allows Xinerama to be used in configurations up to four GPUs and support for any combination of Radeon HD 2000/3000/4000 series products.
Fixed up in Catalyst 9.6 for Linux are a few bugs when it comes to video playback, composite support, Ubuntu 9.04 issues, etc. The latest proprietary ATI Linux driver can be downloaded at AMD.com. Overall this is just another routine monthly update with nothing too exciting and X-Video Bitstream Acceleration continues to be missing.
