AMD announced yesterday, June 28th, the immediate availability for download of the AMD Catalyst 12.6 video driver for Linux operating systems.
As usual, AMD didn't publish any release notes for the ATI Catalyst 12.6 (fglrx 8.98) video driver, but Michael Larabel from Phoronix states that it brings support for application profile, support for Linux kernel 3.4, and various other small bugfixes.
Moreover, AMD Catalyst 12.6 removes support for old graphics cards, such as the R600 and R700 GPUs ( Radeon HD 2000/3000/4000).
AMD Catalyst 12.6 video driver provides production support for the following Linux-based operating systems: Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Novell SUSE Enterprise Linux, openSUSE Linux and Ubuntu Linux. It is available for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures.
