In the Service of 8.10 AMD drivers for their ATI graphics cards.
This version of the driver might be a little controversial, since it was published hours before another version of the driver but only for users of Ubuntu. The official driver is limited to correcting a series of errors present in earlier versions, but still not to include support for X. Org 7.4 or the Linux kernel 2.6.27, so that leaves users of the official version of the driver without support until a new version to be published next month.
On the other hand, due to the imminent release of Ubuntu 8.10, which includes precisely X. Org 7.4 and kernel 2.6.27, was released hours before a driver in the Ubuntu repositories that includes without this support. The non-inclusion in the official version of this suggests that is still in “beta”, so it remains to be seen as the driver is behaving in systems with Ubuntu 8.10.
The list of changes in the driver can see in the official announcement on the website of the driver. As usual, the download of this driver for x86 and x86_64 can be made via Web at AMD.
