Would it pretty please be possible to get unstable nightly (or even weekly) builds of the fglrx driver? A month is quite a long time. It would also help in testing because more frequent updates means you have less edits between two versions so regression testing is easier. (That is, it'd be possible for the end-user to help even without the sources or special tools)
I know there's a beta program (that you have to sign an NDA to join) but I suspect the NDA scares people off. I think nightly builds could be automated so the system shouldn't take that much maintenance.
There is one question for the ATI developers that struggles me: How comes that you break the support for an entire product line, don't notice it during your extensive beta tests, dont't offer a hotfix and don't manage to fix this bug in the next release? Any OSS project would be dead after such a mess.
Don't you know that reliability is one of the most important aspects of a developer-customer-relationship? You disappoint. Again.
luckily for you R300 hardware is well supported by the open drivers.
3D performance is not that good.
I just wonder how such a bug can pass even the poorest quality assurance. And why they don't fix it ASAP. A comparable bug in the open drivers would be fixed within days, if not hours. I mean, it worked before.
