| announced the availability of open-source 
| drivers for the Evergreen family of devices.


AMD and Nvidia bitchfight over open source support

,----[ Quote ]
| Of course, many pertaining to the brotherhood 
| of linux have long had a gripe with AMD over 
| its perceived âlesserâ support, an issue 
| which really came to a head back in 2007, 
| when things were possibly at their most dire 
| in terms of AMD open source support.
| When we contacted the firm to find out why it 
| was that it had such a bad rep on the linux 
| street, we were told by John Bridgman of the 
| firmâs software development engineering group 
| that the image was undeserved.


AMD defends itself from Nvidia OpenCL attack

,----[ Quote ]
| Earlier this week Nvidia and AMD squared off 
| over support for open source drivers, and it 
| seems neither company is ready to lay down 
| the handbag just yet â this time against the 
| backdrop of OpenCL.

Ubuntu Has Another Special ATI Catalyst Driver?

,----[ Quote ]
| The past three releases of Ubuntu Linux
| have included unreleased ATI Catalyst
| drivers. It started with Ubuntu 8.10, which
| got an early-access driver as the official
| Catalyst Linux driver that was available to
| the public at the time had not supported X
| Server 1.5. With Ubuntu 9.04, AMD was
| running behind at supporting X Server 1.6
| as found in the Jaunty Jackalope, so it too
| received an early ATI driver.

| Server 1.7 series branch since its release
| last year. All major development work

| which is expected for release in March.

,----[ Quote ]
| With there being just more than three months
| left until the planned release of X Server
| 1.8, Keith Packard has just issued the second
| snapshot for those interested in trying out
| this developmental X.Org server. The first X
| Server 1.8 snapshot came two months ago, but
| this second snapshot is arriving later than
| expected after having to deal with some bugs.
