Resolved Issues

The following section provide a brief description of resolved issues with the latest version of the ATI Catalyst™ Linux software suite. These include:

* The Xserver no longer crashes if the screen resolution is changed in horizontal or vertical desktop setup with a monitor that does not support DDC. Further details can be found in topic number 737-32223
* The Xserver no longer segfaults or fails to initialize DRI if a BusID was specified in an unexpected format in xorg.conf. Further details can be found in topic number 737-32224
* The Xserver no longer freezes on shutdown if atieventsd is running. Further details can be found in topic number 737-32225
* The first OpenGL application run after starting a session on Xserver version 1.4 no longer hangs. Further details can be found in topic number 737-32226


Sounds like less worse than 8.1

Anybody has tested it?

I'm sticking with AIGLX and the radeon driver.
