AMD Catalyst 10.10 For Linux Officially Released

While users of Ubuntu 10.10 “Maverick Meerkat” have had access to an early release of the Catalyst 10.10 Linux driver that AMD had sent over to Canonical in advance in order to provide X.Org Server 1.9 support, the rest of the Linux-using public now finally has access to the official Catalyst 10.10 build. Those that have already used Catalyst 10.10 in the Ubuntu Maverick release have been rather excited for its changes.

AMD’s Catalyst 10.10 proprietary Linux driver has initial support for X.Org Server 1.9 and thereby “early look support” for Ubuntu 10.10 and other distributions using this very latest xorg-server. Catalyst 10.10 also carries v-sync fixes, 2D acceleration improvements for their newer 2D architecture, Compiz fixes, and various other work.
