    More than bugfixes there, it would seem:
    – Early support for Ubuntu 8.10
    – Bus and Memory Bandwidth info in the control panel
    – ATI Stream support (GPU as a computational processor)
    – SurroundView support for spanning OpenGL apps across multiple monitors

    Early support for 8.10? Ubuntu 8.10 came with Catalyst 8.11…
    …and so far it is running fine.

    kccricket, it seems you’ve missed the “resolved issues” section.

    Sorry, I misunderstood your comment. You’re right, more than bugfixes.

    I can’t recommend the Cat 8.12 driver. The Windows and Linux versions show both the same issues in Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. You can check out the screenshot in our forum, but it is written in German: http://forum.lulu-wg.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=154

    …I reverted back to 8.11 and everything is back to normal.
