GNOME 3.18 fix
In [catalyst] and [catalyst-stable] you may find a new package cogl 1.22.0-2. It brings fix for recent problems with new GNOME 3.18 and new GDM (it baheves strange with plasma though, after choosing plasma and entering password I have to switch to tty and then back to X to see plasma desktop, probably another bug).
Source and a patch is here: http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/archlinux-catalyst/tarball/gnome318-problems/cogl-1.22.0-2.src.tar.gz

I'm gonna paste your story there, maybe it will help someone.
Hope you don't mind, whoever you are ;) (as I can see that your account doesn't exist anymore)

be aware that I removed linux from dependency array and so it will let linux to update (while it's not supported tongue), if you will not configure bootloader to use kernel older than 4.2, like linux-lts, it will probably boot linux and you will probably gonna see a freeze or blank screen. System should work though, you can ssh to it and config bootloader from here, or use single mode if you can't ssh, or well there's possibility that linux-lts was added before, boot it and config as default kernel to boot.

updated to 15.9
4.2 kernel is in [core] and we still don't have support for it.
So for now please use linux-lts kernel.

couple of words about 15.7::
OpenGL is now in 4.5 version, it brings fixes for some titles like borderlands 2 which now works well, still looks like crap smile but at least its fluid. Even warsow seems snappier, but it's not mindblowing. Dota 2 is kinda laggy in some situations, plus it crashed on exit (sic!) and I wasn't able to kill its process (sadface, at least it wasnt eating resources, only ate some ram and sit)...
They fixed vaapi which latelly wasn't working with -va vaapi option.
It does support xserver 1.17, but tty - just like with ubuntu 15.4 version - is all black - another sadpanda.
And ofcourse glitching (on plasma DE) chromium - cherry on the top.


I don't think it deserves [catalyst-stable] or catalyst@AUR...

I will put it into [catalyst] for now, catalyst-test@AUR already is updated

updated to 15.5-1 - AKA "nothing interesting":
- it doesn't support xserver 1.17
- looks older than ubuntu vivid driver which we are using ie in catalyst-test@AUR
- rel notes: http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDCatalyst15-5LINReleaseNotes.aspx

xserver 1.17 renders nasty segfault.
For now you can use [xorg116] repo:

[xorg116]
# uncomment one server from the list below:
#Server = http://catalyst.wirephire.com/repo/xorg116/$arch
#Server = http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/archlinux-catalyst/repo/xorg116/$arch
#Server = http://mirror.hactar.bz/Vi0L0/xorg116/$arch

Xorg was updated to 1.17 today - this breaks automated dependencies..

quote from bar and grill:
I can see that git version already have this patch included (as well as other fixes). Can some pxp user check if xf86-video-intel-git works fine on their systems with xserver 1.16 installed? You can get this pkg from AUR or from the [mesa-git] repo or you can use mine if you want[1], i built it minutes ago for x86_64.
