Submission + - ATI Catalyst 7.11 released (softpedia.com)

angryfirelord writes: "A new version of the ATI/AMD Linux display driver was released last night for both x86 and x86_64 platforms. This release is a bit special, as it includes support for Ubuntu 7.10. Moreover, starting with this version, the ATI Catalyst software suite does not support the Linux kernel 2.4, XFree86 4.3 software and workstation hardware.

Issues resolved in this release:

-Launching a new terminal in RHEL5 32bit version no longer results in inconsistent background colors appearing each time the window is minimized and maximized
-The kernel module is now working on kernel version 2.6.23
-An error message no longer appears during installation if dash is used as /bin/sh

Known issues of this release

-There is no support for video playback on the second head in dual head mode.
-Desktop corruption may be noticed when dragging the overlay/video when using dual-display mode.
-A black screen may be observed on some hardware when switching to the console or leaving the X window system when a vesa framebuffer console driver is used.
-An error message appears during installation if dash is used as /bin/sh.
-Several distribution-specific packaging scripts are not up-to-date in this release. In particular, packaging for 64-bit Ubuntu versions is known to be broken."
