Hi.
Catalyst 9.8 is released: http://blogs.amd.com/play/2009/08/14/what’s-a-good-title-for-a-quakecon-blog/

OpenGL 3.2 context can not be created (3.2 version in attribute fields fails, and WGL_ARB_create_context_profile extension is unavailable). But good news is, that there are some nice new extensions available. On my HD4870 these extensions are new from 9.7 driver version:

GL_AMD_vertex_shader_tessellator
GL_ARB_geometry_shader4
GL_ARB_uniform_buffer_object
GL_EXT_geometry_shader4
GL_EXT_pixel_buffer_object
GL_EXT_provoking_vertex
GL_EXT_vertex_array_bgra
GL_NV_explicit_multisample

This looks very nice. Can't wait to get the Linux version (not yet available unfortunately...).

I've already had GL_EXT_pixel_buffer_object, GL_EXT_provoking_vertex and GL_EXT_vertex_array_bgra via Catalyst 9.7 on my HD4850.
But it's very nice to have the other 4, especially GS.

Oh, sorry. I realized I was comparing with extension list from 9.6 catalyst.
