updated to 15.5-1 - AKA "nothing interesting":
- it doesn't support xserver 1.17
- looks older than ubuntu vivid driver which we are using ie in catalyst-test@AUR
- i've added initial support for 4.1 kernel (using kolasa's patch, tested on 4.1rc5)
- rel notes:

I tired to install today after running pacman -Syu, which brought down linux-3.18.4-1. This threw an error "make *** /usr/lib/modules/3.18.2-2-ARCH cannot be found: Directory or file does not exist" (or something like that). I believe the kernel has been updated to 3.18.4-1-ARCH though this (PKGBUILD?) is expecting 3.18.2-2-ARCH.
To get around this problem until an update is produced run:
sudo mv /usr/lib/modules/3.18.4-1-ARCH /usr/lib/modules/3.18.2-2-ARCH
Then install with "yaourt -S catalyst" and before rebooting run:
sudo mv /usr/lib/modules/3.18.2-2-ARCH /usr/lib/modules/3.18.4-1-ARCH
Otherwise your kernel will fail to load.

don't look at the amd's versioning, it's pure craziness ;P.
I'm always versioning in a old-fasion way "year.month" to keep pacman sane - theres only one problem with it - whenever amd decide to put two separate versions in a same month, where newer is actually worse/older...
catalyst-test brings beta driver which was prepared for ubuntu 14.10 to support xserver 1.16.
And this stable driver, versioned by amd as 14.9, is just another mile-stone - probably old because getting certification from microsoft is taking some time (remember that catalyst shares code between linux and windows). And it doesn't support xserver 1.16 - but its working, amd marked is as stable, and so am I

Right now, this one is newer than the catalyst-test package, right? Looking at the pkgbuild's, this one is version 14.301.1001 and catalyst-test is 14.201. I'm just a little confused why the catalyst-test package supports xserver 1.17 and this one doesn't.

updated to 14.9-1:
- official, stable release

- it doesn't support xserver 1.16

- I added my fresh patch for kernel 3.17 rc6.
Notes about the patch:
1. it probably wont work on 3.17 kernels older than rc6 because I don't know how to tell preprocessor about rc version :P
2. im unable to test resume/suspend
3. im not the developer, just pressing random keys :P so the patch could be less/more noobish :-)

well yes, catalyst-test @AUR or packages from [catalyst] are basing on driver for ubuntu 14.10 and does support xserver 1.16.

Its just that official and stable AMD's 14.9 doesn't support xserv 1.16.
