    Here are the release notes of the forthcoming drivers

    Glad you posted that message Zardon,.... I've been logging on and off all morning and had noticed that a certain "Catalyst Maker" had been listed as "online" each of my visits.

    I look forward, hopefully to the end of the mysterious monitor shutdown behaviour I've been experiencing with the 3.9 suite.

    :drool:

    I don't need them (no problems at all for the moment), but always update my drivers

    So looking forward to them :D

    "OpenGL Shading Language Support"
    This release adds support for the OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL), a flexible, forward-looking, and hardware-independent high-level graphics programming language. The OpenGL Shading Language, defined as an open standard by the OpenGL Architecture Review Board, allows application developers to take advantage of the powerful programmable vertex and pixel processing units present in the 3D graphics system. Open languages offer developers the fastest route to using the latest graphics hardware features. Developers who are interested in using the OpenGL Shading Language with ATI hardware should contact ATI Developer Relations (devrel@ati.com) for more details and documentation. This feature is available for the following ATI RADEONâ„¢ family product line:

    ATI RADEONâ„¢ 9800 series
    ATI RADEONâ„¢ 9700 series
    ATI RADEONâ„¢ 9600 series
    ATI RADEONâ„¢ 9500 series

    Hmm, what's this all about?

    Yes ati has a strange version naming. But the 3 stand for 2003 and 1-10 are the releases. Imho they it would have been better to name them 3.01-3.10 but on the other hand who cares :D

    i think the big ordeal about 4.0 v. 3.10 is that the number before the decimal (4) implies a new build number of the drivers as opposed to modifications.

    i don't know if that means the NEXT set will be 3.11 or 4.0, so we'll just have to wait and see..
