    the leaked driver seems to be ok. I am using kwin 4.1.85+effects and watch tv with tvtime - and so far no problems. Resizing windows is as slow as always and at one point the kmenu was stuck until I closed tvtime. Apart from that there doesn't seem to be any problems. I will try 3d later.

    uhm.. something between OpenGL 2.0 support and worse 3d accel?

    However, I'm asking myself how fglrx and radeon compare at OGL 1.x performance... perhaps the difference there is not /that/ big?

    Thank you, it would be really nice to know if there is still hope or if I just have to live with the open source driver.

    Just for the record... we do *not* work on three monthly releases at the same time. There is continuous development on a mainline, with release branches taken off periodically for QA testing and final bug fixing. I expect the primary issue here is that reproducing an "obvious" problem on an in-house developer's system doesn't happen anywhere near as quickly or reliably as you might think, and if the problem can't be reproduced in house it's kinda hard for a developer to fix it.

    I'll see if I can find out what the situation is with R300 support.

This way, I was disappointed twice, this month. First, when 8.12 still didn't work with my hardware and second, because it is very unlikely that it will be fixed next month. So, I'll have to wait at least two more months.
    New bugs usually only get fixed three releases after first appearance because of the driver development schedule (they work on 3 releases at the same time, so the team that worked on 8.5 fixes the 8.5 bugs until release 8.8; at least, that's how I understand the problem...)

    EDIT: Well... 9.1 - 8.10 is actually 3 releases, but at least that explains why they're taking so long to fix the problem

    AFAIK a beta version HAS bugs, and they need to be squashed through beta testing.
    and remember, the release will be the next month!!!

    DEAR ATI, IF YOU JUST DROPPED R300 SUPPORT, WHY NOT BE HONEST ABOUT IT?
    Absolutely Stormking.

    If ATI want to gain any of my respect (and my cash when I purchase a new laptop) then BE HONEST WITH YOU CUSTOMERS.

    No honesty = No respect
