    I was expecting march as well. But the website I linked to states that is will be available in Windows Xp, Windows Vista and Linux...

    Well, the only thing we can do is wait a few more hours until AMD finally fixed the links on their website (one of their websites already links to the 9.1 windows driver, but if you click on it, a 8.12 download is presented) so we can download it and try for ourselves.

    Ups, I not used to the "latency" between posts. So I have posted the exact same two times.

    But more amazing news for me personally is that OpenGL 3.0 is fully supported! Lets hope this is true for the Linux driver as well. Can't wait to try!
    I don't think OpenGL 3.0 is supported yet on linux. Not 9.1 beta or even 9.2 beta (which I am runnning) supports more than OpenGL 2.1.8472. And I don't think they would implement OpenGL 3.0 between a beta and a release :P

    We would probably wait to marts before anything related to OpenGL 3.0 is released.

    Just what I said

    Finally I think this "supposed delay" may be due to the Christmas holidays, and that there was no fixed date for the release.. so... there's no reason to question or speculate: it will arrive before the end of the month and don't expect anything special until you can read the changelog.

    methinks the driver is now broken beyond repair.

    if you think about it, even for just a second, it's the most plausible explanation. *sigh*

    Most of the certification effort overlaps the rest of the testing. We do a lot of things in parallel to keep the release pipe from getting too long. I think the added delay would be on the order of a day or so.

    Just to be clear, any of the scenarios discussed could happen for a specific release (maybe not the mass Christmas party hangover), I'm just saying that for most releases none of them apply. We normally try to keep Linux and Windows releases on the same code base to minimise the chance of missed bugs, but that is not cast in stone either.

    I don't follow your logic. Why are you assuming that certification is gating the Windows releases ? WHQL certification is just one of a bunch of quality tests we need to pass internally before release.
    If your driver doesn't get certified, it can't be installed. Windows will complain. I assume certification takes time? Therefore we need to wait? :P
