Finally Made a Release of Revenge...

I've finally decided to release Revenge 1.0, even though there are still some
bugs, as explained in my previous post...

This should make things easier for people who don't want to use the code from
Git... Maybe Revenge could even make it into some distributions; this would
certainly be helpful for distributions shipping fglrx. It would allow users to
help free software development even though they are (for now) still running a
proprietary driver.

There are still a few things to work out, such as finishing setting up the email
address for dumps, and writing instructions for users, but things are moving
along...

Deb available?
I'd like to help. Is there a deb package for Ubuntu? Also, how will this affect my everyday computer use? With the machine be slower/more crash prone/something else?

Re: Deb available?
There isn't any Debian or Ubuntu package, sorry. You can compile it from source,
though; either download the latest version from Freedesktop, or from Git.

Revenge won't cause any long-term stability (or any other) problems; the
absolute worst that may happen is your computer would lockup, and you would have
to reboot. This is very unlikely.

All Revenge does is read and write a few select registers to obtain information,
then read the command buffer memory read by the GPU; it's pretty non-invasive...
