    Post Nvidia Driver 310.19 Has Hit Stable Release

    I really wish I could get email updates about these drivers, but here's the changelog:

    • Added support for OpenGL 4.3.
    • Added a new X configuration option, "UseHotplugEvents", to allow the suppression of RandR events when adding or removing non-DisplayPort displays. See the "X Config Options" appendix of the README for details.
    • Added support for configuring stereo in nvidia-settings when stereo is enabled in the X configuration file.
    • Added support for configuring the ViewPortIn and ViewPortOut for display devices in nvidia-settings.
    • Fixed metamode bookkeeping when modifying the display configuration in the "X Server Display Configuration" page of nvidia-settings.
    • Added support for configuring rotation and reflection per display device in nvidia-settings.
    • Implemented workarounds for two Adobe Flash bugs by applying libvdpau commit ca9e637c61e80145f0625a590c91429db67d0a40 to the version of libvdpau shipped with the NVIDIA driver.
    • Fixed an issue which affected the performance of moving windows of VDPAU applications when run in some composite managers.
    • Added unofficial GLX protocol support (i.e., for GLX indirect rendering) for the GL_ARB_pixel_buffer_object OpenGL extension.
    • Added support for HDMI 3D Stereo with Quadro Kepler and later GPUs. See the documentation for the "Stereo" X configuration option in the README for details.
    • Added experimental support for OpenGL threaded optimizations, available through the __GL_THREADED_OPTIMIZATIONS environment variable. For more information, please refer to the "Threaded Optimizations" section in chapter "Specifying OpenGL Environment Variable Settings" of the README.
    • Improved performance and responsiveness of windowed OpenGL applications running inside a Unity session.

    I hope so!
    No matter if there is in experimental or in nvidia-current-updates, they have to be released in the official repos!!!

    This, according to me, it's a moment that is a trampoline for Linux for games and maybe even for apps.
    If we don't make updated drivers available as soon as they're released (or with a few days of delay) or if we don't make the support available, how can we hope that Linux will be succesfull?

    I think Canonical should put all the effort it has in this moment...
    If they work hard and succeed, it will be a very positive advertisement for Linux in general.

    Who knows... we may even see Photoshop on Linux soon!!!

    PS: Sorry if I mistyped something, English is not my main language...
