I follow the radeon updates pretty closely and my 9200 finally starting working
with 3d again a few weeks before the release. Airlie has continued
development in the f12 branch and there have been several updates over the
last couple of weeks.
If you have just tried F11 and not F12 you should consider doing so. For r5xx
and below, grab a live image and install one of the smaller 3d apps and
try it out. For r6xx and above you'll want to install
mesa-experimental-drivers and update xorg-x11-drv-ati. This won't get you
the kernel updates related to graphics since the release, but should give
you a good look at where things are at so that you can decide if you want
install F12 on the machine.
Hi,

I have tried out F12 on 4 different systems, 2 with different ATI graphics and
two with different Intel based boards. Only the last one appears to be able
to run Blender. You mention "Airlie has continued development in the f12 branch". If that means there are people working on the bugs and producing new
driver updates for F12 (DRM,MESA,X11), especially for ATI then I certainly
will give it some time.
