There was an xorg-x11-6.8.2 update released today for FC3. It still
not include the ATI/GATOS multimedia modules even though GATOS has been
merged into xorg for a long time now.
Will or does the FC4 xorg contain the ATI multimedia modules?
Parts of GATOS were merged into CVS head of development, which
will be included in X11R7 which will be the next major Xorg
6.8.2, and any other 6.8.x releases that occur in the future,
are bug-fix only releases which fix bugs reported since the
previous 6.8.x release, and add no major new features.
The xorg-x11 in FC4-devel is identical to the FC3 one, except
compiled with a different compiler. The FC4 one has a few
additional bug fixes which are being tested first before
getting committed to CVS for 6.8.3.
Fedora Core 5 will probably be the first release to include
the GATOS drivers as a native part of X.Org X11, assuming
that X11R7 gets released in time to be included in FC5.
The X11R7 schedule is not completely written in stone yet
though, so it's speculative only at this point.
Hope this helps clarify things a bit. ;)
