- Fixed an issue with Mad Max on Vulkan
- Updated marketing names for Radeon™ Pro Duo and AMD FirePro™ S9300 x2.
- Some performance issues with AMD Radeon™ R9 2xx cards on glmark2, tessract and gpuplot3D addressed.
- System hangs when OpenCL attempts to allocate more than available system memory.
- Deadlock when running Vulkan CTS dEQP-VK.synchronization.internally_synchronized_objects.pipeline_cache_compute test. This is caused by an issue in Linux kernel mutex, which is fixed by the following patch https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9443007/
- Xserver crashes when running Ansys V18 application on RHEL. The issue can be avoided by running the following two commands as root before launching the app:
"ln -sf /opt/amdgpu-pro/lib64/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib64/libGL.so.1"
"ln -sf /opt/amdgpu-pro/lib64/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib64/libGL.so"
