| highlight what are certainly the most important new features in these 
| drivers, support for X.org 7.4 and the ABI of the 1.5 series X server. Six 
| months after the appearance of the first distributions of X Server  1.5 
| pre-release versions, AMD's proprietary graphics drivers can finally be used.
