Today we released a beta driver for the OpenGL® 4.2 API specification just announced by the Khronos Group this week. The new AMD Catalyst™ Beta package for the OpenGL 4.2 API is available for download for use with the Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Linux operating systems.

Full story and downloads






P.S.

GPU acceleration in VLC media player is broken again  :P

Its missing a few 4.2 extensions like GL_ARB_shading_language_420pack and GL_ARB_shading_language_packing.
Some of the 4.2 extensions only show as EXT not ARB, and it only supports 4.1 core not 4.2

Not quite a 4.2 driver... hopefully next release will be complete.
