From the release announcement by Michel Dänzer -

I'm pleased to announce the 18.0.0 release of xf86-video-ati, the Xorg driver for ATI/AMD Radeon GPUs supported by the radeon kernel driver. This release supports xserver versions 1.13-1.19. It also works with xserver 1.20 RC1, so unless something unexpected happens, it should work with xserver 1.20 as well.


  • New year-based versioning scheme
  • Page flipping can now be used even when the HW cursor can't be used in some cases
  • Support for 30-bit RGB colour output. Note that gamma correction is currently not available with 30-bit colour. Also, GLAMOR hardware acceleration is not available with 30-bit colour with xserver versions before 1.20.

Plus other improvements and fixes. Thanks to everybody who contributed to this release in any way!

Summary: xf86-video-ati-10.0.0xf86-video-ati-18.0.1

I missed that there had been a subsequent .1 release on 15th March:

This is a bug-fix release addressing issues in 18.0.0. While those issues shouldn't affect most users, I recommend that all users of 18.0.0 update to 18.0.1.

  • The Xorg process could crash when multiple primary screens are configured in xorg.conf.
  • TearFree could trigger debugging messages in the pixman library MD5: 40e7c0a5a69aba3d84e0958f58705ea7 xf86-video-ati-18.0.1.tar.bz2
