The other day it was released the new version of the open ati driver (or radeon, they are the same package but with different names) and because I had nothing to do and because I use an Ati, I decided to package it for jaunty Ubuntu 9.04.
The version is 6.12.4, which followed one day the release of version 6.12.3, apparently because it fixes a bug with xorg 7.5.
Obviously I tried it with my radeon x1600: compiz and everything worked perfectly, and indeed gives me the feeling of greater reactivity.
Anyway I was saying that I created a deb package for ubuntu jaunty, for both 32bit and for 64bit, you can download it from my repository (recommended to read the instructions at the top, in the page repository, it’s in italian but you’ll find the link to my repository to put in synaptic) or directly from here (the repository is still better):
For the list of bugs fixed (and there are several) you can read the announcement here in the mailing list for version 6.12.3 (as I said the two bugs 6.12.4 fixes only):
As always, write in comments if you like everything, if you have problems or just to have your say.
