Canonical Publishes ATI Catalyst 8.10 Beta

,----[ Quote ]
| Whatever the official case is, Canonical is now providing an ATI Linux driver
| that isn't yet available to ATI's customers through their driver web-site.
| This driver is part of the fglrx 8.54 release stream, which makes it part of
| what should be Catalyst 8.10. Considering this is a beta driver, don't be
| surprised if there are a few bugs in this initial X Server 1.5 support or
| fallout elsewhere. At least ATI card owners will now be able to use Ubuntu
| 8.10 with a working graphics driver. With this release now out there, we will
| continue our exploration of this new driver.
