    101 > 20.

    I don't think it's a decimal point.

      Indeed, that wouldn't make sense. Otherwise kernel 3.19 would be older than 3.2. So maybe Civ BE is workling now, who knows?

          Only flagship Carrizo's pciid is there... probably someone at Computex wants to run it on SLED12

            Bioshock not even mentioned in the release notes. Anyone tried it on a pre-GCN GPU with this release?

            EDIT: Nope, it's a re-versioned driver again. A shame really.

              I'm not sure I feel like messing up my radeonsi + kernel 4.1 setup just to test it out. But if one of you guys is in the testing mood I'd be happy to know if there is a change in general gaming performance or all we're getting after half an year are 2 minor fixes.

                For general users there is no changelog nedeed just newer snapshot to try so hopefully in general something gets improved... but yeah for customers there is a changelog

                  What a disappointment.. A 6 month wait and they don't even support newer kernels. I guess AMD want's me to buy an nVidia next.

                    And only one new feature: support for SLED 12.
