Let me just copy-paste:
I'm AFK and will so be till saturday.
In case of problems please write on bar and grill thread. If no one will help and there's some serious bug - please write the bug report on bugzilla.

Meanwhile you can still use archive repos like ones for 13.4 and 13.11-beta94:
[catalyst-stable-13.4] and [catalyst-13.11-beta94]
Server's URLs are like on the wiki for [catalyst].

Or build pkgs on your own basing on archive tarballs (use newest ver):

As for the xserver 1.14 - yes, you can safely switch to it. If you are using xvba/vaapi and will notice problems with it (some people noticed problems but it's not the general rule) you can always downgrade to xserver 1.13

Is it somehow possible to downgrade to 13.4? 13.12 is giving me a few issues, but I can't find the old package for catalyst-hook. It managed to download the 13.4 binary from the ATI page, but I'm not sure if I should just install it manually.
Also, is it safe to upgrade to Xorg 1.14 with the 13.12 catalyst?

- AMD marked it as stable, so am I...

@veox: who said you need linux package?

veox commented on 2013-12-18 15:39

Should depend on `linux-headers`, otherwise:

Kernel header files are absent: directory /usr/lib/modules/3.12.5-1-ARCH/build doesn't exist! Game over

silent update, no pkgrel bump:
- thanks to zoopp and his referer we no longer have to download installer manually :)

amd's site is not allowing direct download anymore...
read the top of PKGBUILD for instructions.

- added workaround to bring support of kernel 3.12, by Krzysztof Kolasa

Vi0L0 commented on 2013-10-27 18:35

upgraded to 13.4-15:
- added staticlibs and libtool to the options and it fixed the whole libfglrx_ip.a bug
- the package is a lot bigger because I added !strip to the options, it's leaving symbols in the libraries so the package (and libs themselves) are bigger - but it could be useful, especially in some debugging

guys, 13.9 has memory leak, it's not stable at all.
AMD could say otherwise but don't listen to them :P

you will find 13.9 at catalyst-test and catalyst-test-pxp @ AUR,
and maybe tomorrow on the [catalyst] repo
