This release features some fixes needed by Team Fortress 2 and other Linux games on Steam. Unfortunately, this driver supports Ubuntu 12.04 LTS only which comes with xorg 1.12. Ubuntu 12.10 ships with xorg 1.13, so in order to use this driver on Ubuntu 12.10, you will have to downgrade to xorg 1.12. Tomasz Makarewicz has updated his PPA (big thanks to him!!), providing an easy way to downgrade xorg and install patched Catalyst Legacy 13.1 (fglrx 8.97.1 (HowTos)
