RadeonHD Video Driver 1.0.0 Released

RadeonHD video driver version 1.0.0 was announced today on the X.org Foundation website. Luc Verhagen, from Novel says:”We still have some open bugs which will require some further investigation. But no release will ever be perfect, and our early adopters are reporting far less issues already, so we feel that our driver is good enough to be tagged as a proper release. This way, a wider public will start to use our driver, and further issues can be discovered and fixed.”..RadeonHD is also known as xf86-video-radeonhd and it’s an X.org video driver for R500 and newer ATI graphics devices. It is being developed by Novell for AMD.
