As far as the testsuite is concerned it is still true. An alternative is r600g, which almost runs the d3d tests successfully according to Henri.
Wrt real games fglrx is in a pretty good shape. Performance isn't as good as the Nvidia drivers, and there are a few bugs here and there. However, if a game doesn't work I usually blame Wine first and then the driver. Bleeding edge games are probably still tricky.
