    New Features

    This release of CATALYST™ provides users with a new feature known as the ATI Control Panel Shortcut.

    After the thrashing the 3.8's had gotten re monitor problems, ATi progbably figured that they had to release these pretty quickly. Not surprisingly, there's lots of stuff in the release notes about monitors.
