GNOME 3.18 fix
In [catalyst] and [catalyst-stable] you may find a new package cogl 1.22.0-2. It brings fix for recent problems with new GNOME 3.18 and new GDM (it baheves strange with plasma though, after choosing plasma and entering password I have to switch to tty and then back to X to see plasma desktop, probably another bug).
Source and a patch is here:

updated to 15.9
4.2 kernel is in [core] and we still don't have support for it.
So for now please use linux-lts kernel.

be aware that I removed linux from dependency array and so it will let linux to update (while it's not supported tongue), if you will not configure bootloader to use kernel older than 4.2, like linux-lts, it will probably boot linux and you will probably gonna see a freeze or blank screen. System should work though, you can ssh to it and config bootloader from here, or use single mode if you can't ssh, or well there's possibility that linux-lts was added before, boot it and config as default kernel to boot.

I suffer terrible performance issue (Radeon HD6570) when I try to resize windows (particularly chromium) under xfce. The windows flinker and take a lot of the to resize. It may be the same bug as the chromium glitch mentioned in the comment below. For now, I use the opensource ati driver that does not have this problem and seems to work relatively well.

here's bug report of chromium glitch :
feel free to add comment - this should make it more "visible"

iirc chrome was always glitching on plasma DE, with one catalyst release i was able to fight it with systemsettings5, but it wasnt general solution.
As for sublime not long ago ekr was writing about sublimes terrible performance on catalyst 15.5 release.
The one and only real workaround for both chromium and sublime glitches/performance issues is to disable compositing.

I believe the chromium glitching started one release before 15.7.
With 15.7 Sublime Text becomes super slow (press Ctrl+K B to trigger sidebar hide/reveal animation to demonstrate).

OpenGL is now in 4.5 version, it brings fixes for some titles like borderlands 2 which now works well, still looks like crap smile but at least its fluid. Even warsow seems snappier, but it's not mindblowing. Dota 2 is kinda laggy in some situations, plus it crashed on exit (sic!) and I wasn't able to kill its process (sadface, at least it wasnt eating resources, only ate some ram and sit)...
They fixed vaapi which latelly wasn't working with -va vaapi option.
It does support xserver 1.17, but tty - just like with ubuntu 15.4 version - is all black - another sadpanda.
And ofcourse glitching (on plasma DE) chromium - cherry on the top.

I don't think it deserves [catalyst-stable] or catalyst@AUR...

I will put it into [catalyst] for now, catalyst-test@AUR already is updated

Catalyst 15.7 is out, release notes state "Xorg/Xserver 7.4 and above (up to 1.17)"

Anyone else having problems with terrible scrolling performance in sublime text with catalyst? Other apps don't seem to have this problem, although it's clearly a 2D acceleration issue.

I'm back to catalyst after the xorg-server crashed several times with the open source driver.
