AMD HAS RELEASED a new version of its proprietary ATI Catalyst Linux display driver for both x86 and x86_64 systems.
The ATI Catalyst 9.8 suite updates the software to version 8.64 and supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.8 -- and therefore most Red Hat based Linux distros -- as well as the current Debian based Ubuntu 9.04 known as Jaunty Jackalope.
The release also supports RandR 1.2 to manage display rotation, desktop sizing and multiple display arrangement.
It also works better for users of the popular Ubuntu 9.04 who use multi ASIC configurations. They can now use normal mouse cursor movement between displays, which means the end of the static cursor.
