Ubuntu 11.10 will Provide Post Release Updates for ATI and Nvidia Proprietory Drivers
Interesting – searched for this after seeing as an option in Alternative drivers via Ubuntu control centre.
Tried it and it works for me ;-)
Updates to the proprietary AMD Catalyst and NVIDIA drivers post-release will finally be available! No longer will you be bound to the latest NVIDIA / AMD driver release at the time of the distribution’s release. Canonical is looking to provide optional packages via Jockey that user’s can opt-in to using that would enable using the latest monthly / stable blobs. This though isn’t for open-source driver users since those are harder to update in a sane manner, but there is also xorg-edgers for that as well.
