The xf86-video-ati 7.6.0 release supports xserver versions 1.8-1.18.

New features in this release:

* DRI3 and Present extension support, allowing more efficient and secure
  OpenGL compositing
* Option "TearFree" [0] to eliminate tearing (currently only effective for
  non-rotated outputs)
* Option "ShadowPrimary" [0] which may deliver better performance for some
  2D use cases, at the potential expense of other use cases (only available
  with glamor)
* DisplayPort 1.2 MST support
* Implemented support for Xorg -background none with glamor and fixed it to
  work better with EXA
* The contents of newly allocated buffers are always initialized before
  scanout, reducing intermittent artifacts

[0] Enabling Option "TearFree" or Option "ShadowPrimary" currently disables
    DRI page flipping.

Plus support for a few more Bonaire and Oland GPUs, and lots of other small
improvements and fixes. Thanks to everybody who contributed to this
