Yes, I am working on the ATI driver.
But I don't know if there are anybody else that is working on the driver.
There was someone that updated the driver, so you can change the mousepointer.
But I don't know who did that.

Slowly forward...
For the moment I am trying to port DRM, to get 3d acceleration to work...
http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/DRM

I thought I could get it to work without DRM, but it looks like I failed there.
Must get 3d acceleration to work to get 2d acceleration to work with r600-evergreen card.
You output 2d with 3d...
For the moment there only software rendering for r600-r700 card, some of the 2d functions does not work properly either.
I think I can fix this, but for the moment I am trying to port DRM, software is too slow.
They have removed the 2d acceleration from r600-evergreen card.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radeon_R700
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radeon_R800

I have implemented 2d acceleration for r5xx card, nearly the same functions as older card.
But I have not tested it so good, I had some problem switching resolution with my Ati Radeon x1300 card last time I tried it.
But if you look on my Amiga 500 x86 project I am using the driver with my Ati Radeon x1300.

@saimon69

I've had hit or miss luck with igp's with this driver so far. Some work better then others.

from what i understand its probably not worth even trying to avoid writing Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) code as they all use it on all viable platforms Today.

Plus OC IF its intended for AROS to actually take off at any point, your also going to need to pass your patches back to Mesa Git Master so your improvements can be seen by other Pro devs and perhaps encourage them to use the better AROS way to improve speed and even come here and help etc

you mean working on and from the current Mesa 7.9 git of the R600g (g as in >) Gallium3D Driver right ?
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=ODUzMA

you do know that also the R300g Gallium3D Git With the recent Mesa 7.9 release is also coming along right?
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page ... em=mesa_r300g_oct10&num=1

"the Gallium3D driver architecture is finally getting ready to really enter the spotlight of the normal Linux desktop user. With the recent Mesa 7.9 release, the open-source ATI developers switched their R300 driver (that supports up through R500 ASICs, the Radeon X1000 series) from the classic Mesa to their newer Gallium3D driver as the default choice. Vendors are now preparing to do the same as well within Fedora and other distributions, and it was just agreed upon this week Ubuntu 11.04 will use R300g. There will finally be a real, common hardware driver that is based upon Gallium3D and is used by mass amounts of people on a daily basis in a production environment."

i found this an interesting read , you might too, as it seems at least some people there are profiling for speed or at least looking to encourage other's to improve their code patches for speed etc.
