 No legacy updates though.


   - Fixed a regression in 256.29 where Performance Level clock frequencies
   were reported incorrectly in nvidia-settings.
   - Fixed a 3D Vision Stereo bug that caused the stereo glasses to not
   toggle when the flat panel was not running at its native mode timings.
   - Fixed a bug that caused nvidia-settings to crash when rendering its
   thermal gauge widget if the range of valid values for the thermal sensor was
   - Fixed a bug which prevented use of high performance PowerMizer levels
   on systems with certain ACPI configurations.
   - Fixed a bug that caused non-primary Fermi GPUs to fail to initialize
   framebuffer memory. This caused a variety of symptoms, up to and including
   system hangs.
   - Added unofficial GLX protocol support (i.e., for GLX indirect
   rendering) for the following OpenGL extensions:
      GL_ARB_blend_func_extended GL_ARB_draw_buffers_blend
      GL_ARB_sample_shading GL_ARB_timer_query GL_EXT_draw_buffers2
      GL_EXT_separate_shader_objects GL_NV_explicit_multisample
   - Improved Thermal Settings reporting in nvidia-settings to accurately
   reflect hardware configurations with multiple thermalsensors.
   - Fixed an interaction problem between Compiz and'screen-scraping' VNC
   servers like x11vnc and vino that caused the screento stop updating. Fixes
   Launchpad bug #353126.
   - Enhanced VDPAU to add basic support for Xinerama. VDPAU will now
   operate on a single physical X screen under Xinerama. See theREADME for more
   - Enhanced VDPAU's handling of corrupt clips of all formats on GPUs with
   VDPAU feature set C to be at least as good as on GPUs with VDPAU feature set
   B. This significantly improves various clips provided by nvnews.net user
   - Fixed a bug in Xv attribute handling that caused hue, saturation,
   brightness, and contrast values to be misapplied when using an Xv overlay
   - Fixed a bug in the XvMC driver that prevented it from working on
   systems with AGP graphics cards.
   - Enhanced VDPAU to clear all VdpVideoSurfaces to black when
   allocated.This provides more consistent results when using a surface as a
   reference when no prior decode operation has written to that surface.In
   turn, this improves the results of decoding some corrupt streams,such as
   "p_only_no_play" from ffmpeg bug 1124.
   - Implemented new APIs to allow sharing VDPAU surfaces with OpenGL and
   CUDA. The OpenGL extension is GL_NV_vdpau_interop. For CUDA, please see the
   documentation in the CUDA toolkit for details.
   - Worked around a bug where the combination of a GPU with VDPAU feature
   set A together with specific motherboard chipsets could cause visible
   corruption when decoding some MPEG-2 streams
   - Fixed a bug that prevented the VDPAU overlay-based presentation queue
   from being used more than a few hundred times per X server invocation.
   - Renamed the driver file libGLcore.so.VERSION to
   libnvidia-glcore.so.VERSION, as a small step towards reducing the filename
   collisions between NVIDIA's and MESA's OpenGL implementations.This driver
   file is used by NVIDIA's libGL.so and libglx.so, and should never be used
   directly by applications.
   - Compressed the nvidia-settings, nvidia-installer, and nvidia-xconfig
   tarballs with bzip2, rather than gzip.
