From the release announcement:

I'm pleased to announce the 7.9.0 release of xf86-video-ati, the Xorg
driver for ATI/AMD Radeon GPUs supported by the radeon kernel driver.
This release supports xserver versions 1.10-1.19.

NOTE for packagers: Please ship the new 10-radeon.conf file in the same
package as


* Allow TearFree to be toggled at runtime via an RandR output property
  "TearFree". The xorg.conf option "TearFree" now controls the default
  value of the output properties.
* Use glamor by default for 2D acceleration with >= R600 and Xorg >=
* Ship 10-radeon.conf xorg.conf.d snippet for Xorg >= 1.16, so that the
  radeon driver can be loaded automatically even when the ati wrapper
  driver isn't installed.
* Support loading the amdgpu driver from the ati wrapper driver.
* Use DRM render nodes for DRI3 clients when available.

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