    ATI Proprietary Driver released 5/21/8

    I saw the new ATI driver was released on the 21st. Here's mine:
    Code:
    311-laptop:~$ fglrxinfo 
    display: :0.0  screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1300
    OpenGL version string: 2.0.6473 (8.37.6)
    For the most part mine is working alright and I can't think of any reason to upgrade, but I thought I'd ask. Do you see any reason to upgrade to the latest driver and if so, how can I revert if there's a problem? I've noticed a couple of "How-To's" but it's a .run file so I was just going to download it and do
    Code:
    sh ati-driver-installer-8-4-x86.x86_64.run
    What would you suggest?

    The 8.5 version is much better than the previous, being faster and having solved the multi monitor problems.

    You should give it a try.

    If I install it and it's not to my liking, how can I revert back to what I have now?
