Yep.

Haven't used it yet.  I've been working on two projects mainly 
nonstop.  I hope to get back to Radeon stuff sometime in November 
though.

I hoped to do some fixes before Fedora froze, but I missed the 
cutoff date.  So now it's something that'll get done in rawhide 
hopefully in Nov, and get into future updates (if we even do 
updates), and in my own special repository if not.

Haven't been many ATI bug reports in bugzilla, so problems might 
be unique perhaps to certain setups or somesuch.  I hope to 
figure it all out soon though.  Just too bad there isn't 36 hours 
in a day.  ;o/

Take care,
TTYL
