    Phoronix: AMD Catalyst 13.12 GPU Driver For Linux Released

    Nearly one month after the last Catalyst 13.11 beta release, the Catalyst 13.12 Linux driver has finally surfaced. For ending out the year we have this last major AMD Catalyst Linux update with no new features but there are many bug-fixes...

    So... where is the driver? Unless I'm just blind, I don't see a link for it

      On AMD site I see only 13.11 beta available to download.

        AMD does this every driver release.

        We'll get some kind of announcement, then their site takes like a month to actually have a link to the download.
        If we're lucky someone in some random forum/website will find a link somewhere else ...

            Overall if I counted well 21 defects were fixed and 19 new ones were raised on "Unofficial AMD Bugzilla". Based on the statistic they need to work very hard to clear the backlog. Furthermore I did not see any new feature update.
            Does anybody know
            Why is the unofficial AMD Bugzilla commented by AMD?
            From where are the AMD defect numbers coming?
            They need to be more communicative.

              Managed to get the link:

              You'll need a download manager (couldn't get wget to work), or referral spoofer. Here's a quick guide I wrote up for a spoofer on Chrome.

                  I got this error in make.log on Xubuntu 13.10 with these drivers:

                    Are the Dota2 fixes new in this version, or just the same Source fixes done in the latest beta?
