I'm happy that 7.10 is released... now I'm crossing my fingers ATI will release the 8.42 driver with AIGLX today. ;)

Well, crossing your fingers shouldn't be a problem, except the fact it can become very annoying feature for you after few years.

But I strongly advice against holding your breath.

ATI won't release drivers with AIGLX,... ever. AMD? Maybe. But, we can probably freely guess burden of that lies on X.Org to provide those drivers based on specs they gave, and even that will probably take few more months.

ATI is part of AMD -- and they do plan on releasing AIGLX enabled drivers in the near future.

Well from what I know and I've been following these drivers very closely the ATI/AMD 8.42 drivers should be out this month and they are scheduled to have AIGLX support.

When I upgraded to 2.6.23 kernel I couldn't get the ATI drivers to work, they installed but I didn't get 3D support and it defaulted to using the Mesa drivers. Worked fine in 2.6.22.x.
