AMD Catalyst 8.03 Linux Driver

Filed under
Software

Last month with the Catalyst 8.02 Linux driver we mentioned just how low on the end-user changes the fglrx driver has been in recent months, and today the Catalyst 8.03 Linux driver has been released with the release train slowly chugging along. The only new feature in this month's proprietary Linux driver is X-Video support for the Xpress 1200 hardware, but there are a few bug fixes that may satisfy some Linux users.

The bug-fixes in this release include fixing FireGL 3D application corruption when running at some resolutions, display flickering when gnome-screen-saver starts, image brightness and gamma correction issues, diagonal tearing when using X-Video, and video playback is no longer "blocky" when using X-Video. The bug fixes in this release aren't particularly exciting, but the TexturedVideo/X-Video fixes should be well received by many users that have experienced video playback issues.
