 Release announcement at [https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/amd-

 I'm pleased to announce the 18.0.0 release of xf86-video-amdgpu, the
 Xorg driver for AMD Radeon GPUs supported by the amdgpu kernel driver.
 This release supports xserver versions 1.13-1.19. It also works with
 xserver 1.20 RC1, so unless something unexpected happens, it should work
 with xserver 1.20 as well.


 * New year-based versioning scheme
 * Page flipping can now be used even when the HW cursor can't be used in
   some cases
 * Support for 30-bit RGB colour output. Note that gamma correction is
   currently not available with 30-bit colour. Also, hardware
   acceleration is not available with 30-bit colour with xserver versions
   before 1.20.

 The year-based versioning is why the major version has jumped so much.
