"Last month was an interesting time for AMD and their ATI Linux
display driver. The Radeon HD 2400 and 2600 series were introduced,
but as we have unfortunately come to expect, there was not a
supported R600 driver that day or even that month. In fact, there
still is no Linux driver to support any graphics card in the R600
series. Though making the month unique were two display drivers
being released in the same week. The 8.38.6 driver had introduced
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 support as well as some minor fixes, but
nothing to spark interest in the minds of end-users. The second
Linux driver released, 8.38.7, had come down the pipeline as a
hot-fix release to correct a bug where aticonfig would crash and
remove your xorg.conf. Moving forward to the 8.39.4 driver released
today, we still have no AIGLX or R600 support, but we do have
Fedora 7 support!
