Catalyst 11.11 drivers arrive with Flash 11 support
Where last month's release was all about Battlefield 3 and Rage tweaks, this one introduces support for Adobe's Flash Player 11 and its Stage 3D architecture.
Now, today's Catalyst release isn't entirely devoid of bug fixes. AMD lists a handful of tweaks:
Images and textures are no longer corrupted (Blue) in Rage.
Bezel compensation now works correctly with Far Cry 2.
Screen tearing is no longer randomly observed while moving a window on the desktop while in Clone mode or Eyefinity mode.
A black screen is no longer observed when extending displays.
Homefront no longer crashes randomly when Crossfire is enabled.
DC – Universe Online no longer hangs soon after selecting a character and entering the game.

With the release of the AMD Catalyst™ 12.6 Beta driver (“Catalyst”), AMD would also like to announce that we are moving away from our Monthly Catalyst release plan. Our goal is to ensure that every Catalyst release delivers a substantial benefit to our end users; as we have today with the release of the Catalyst 12.6a Beta. We will still continue with the Catalyst naming convention; Catalyst: Year.Month. You just won’t see a new driver every single month. We are confident that this will only benefit the end user; you’ll only need to upgrade to a new Catalyst driver, when it makes sense.
