Package "nvidia-current"

This package belongs to a PPA: Ubuntu-x-swat

Name: nvidia-current

Description:

NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library
The binary driver provide optimized hardware acceleration of OpenGL
applications via a direct-rendering X Server. AGP, PCIe, SLI, TV-out
and flat panel displays are also supported.

This package also includes the source for building the kernel module
required by the Xorg driver, and provides NVIDIA's implementation of
the Video Decode and presentation API. The latter enables acceleration
for NVIDIA 8 and later series cards for h264 video.

GPUs such as GeForce series 6 or newer are supported.

See /usr/share/doc/nvidia-current/README.txt.gz for a complete list
of supported GPUs and PCIIDs

Change Log

Version: 304.84-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1 2013-03-07 05:08:27 UTC

 nvidia-graphics-drivers (304.84-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1) lucid; urgency=low
 .
   * Fixed a bug that could lead to rendering corruption after an X server
     generation (i.e., leaving an X server running after all of its clients
     have exited).
   * Removed a spurious dependency on libpangox from the nvidia-settings
     binary shipped as part of the driver package.
   * Fixed a bug that could cause the X server to crash when performing an
     RandR 1.0 rotation (e.g., `xrandr --orientation left`) after unplugging
     the last connected monitor.
   * Fixed a bug that caused the nvidia-xconfig(1) man page to be blank.
   * Added support for X.org xserver ABI 14 (xorg-server 1.14).
   * Fixed font rendering performance and corruption problems on X servers
     with backported support for the new glyph cache functionality added
     to Pixman 0.27.
   * Fixed a potential X server crash during initialization, when a graphics
     card with a TV connector has no TV connected.
   * 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.

Version: 304.64-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1 2012-11-07 04:08:29 UTC

 nvidia-graphics-drivers (304.64-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1) lucid; urgency=low
 .
   * Added support for the following GPUs:
      VGX K1
      VGX K2
   * Added a missing 32-bit compatibility library for libnvidia-opencl.so to
     the 64-bit Linux installer package.
   * Fixed a regression in backlight control functionality on some notebook
     configurations.
   * Fixed a performance issue with recent Linux kernels when allocating and
     freeing system memory.
   * Fixed a bug that sometimes prevented the display device / X screen
     selection menu from being displayed in nvidia-settings.
   * Fixed a bug that prevented X driver gamma manipulation from working after
     a VT-switch on some configurations.
   * Added the option "--output-file" to nvidia-bug-report.sh to allow
     specifying a custom filename for the log file.
   * Fixed a hang when using OpenGL programs with some SLI Mosaic configurations
     on pre-Fermi GPUs.
   * Added sections to the "Supported NVIDIA GPU Products" list for NVS, Tesla,
     and VGX products.

Version: 304.60-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1 2012-10-18 21:08:33 UTC

 nvidia-graphics-drivers (304.60-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1) lucid; urgency=low
 .
   * Fixed a bug that caused the X server to crash if a display was put into DPMS off mode
     and subsequently reenabled while screen transformations are in use.
   * Fixed a bug that caused the X Resize and Rotate extension to be enabled when Xinerama is
     enabled. These two X extensions are incompatible and having them both enabled can confuse
     window managers such as KDE's kwin. RandR is now correctly disabled when Xinerama is enabled.
   * Fixed a bug causing OpenGL stereo applications to not work properly when using
     passive stereo modes 5 through 9 on Quadro Fermi and newer GPUs.
   * Updated nvidia-settings to report Dedicated GPU Memory (i.e., the memory dedicated
     exclusively to the GPU) and Total GPU Memory (i.e., Dedicated GPU Memory plus any
     TurboCache(TM)-accessible system memory) separately on the GPU information page.
   * Added reporting of the current utilization of Dedicated GPU Memory to the GPU
     information page of nvidia-settings.
   * Added support for the "Backlight" RandR output property for configuring the
     brightness of some notebook internal panels.
   * Fixed a bug that prevented the Ubuntu Unity launcher panel from unhiding:
     https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bug/1057000
   * Fixed a bug that caused nvidia-installer to sometimes attempt to write a log
     file in a nonexistent directory.
   * Fixed a bug that caused incorrect input transformation after resizing an NVIDIA X
     screen with xserver ABI 12 (xorg-server 1.12) or newer.
   * Fixed a bug that caused GLX to leak memory when Xinerama is enabled.

Version: 304.43-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1 2012-08-28 03:08:32 UTC

 nvidia-graphics-drivers (304.43-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1) lucid; urgency=low
 .
   * Added support for the following GPUs:
      GeForce GTX 660 Ti
      Quadro K5000
      Quadro K5000M
      Quadro K4000M
      Quadro K3000M
      NVS 510
   * Fixed a bug that caused pre-release versions of X.Org xserver 1.13 to crash
     when certain GLX operations were performed, such as when starting Firefox.
   * Fixed a bug that caused VDPAU to hang when expanding the YouTube Flash Player.
   * Fixed a bug that caused gnome-settings-daemon to revert display configuration
     changes made by nvidia-settings.
   * Updated nvidia-settings to use RandR per-CRTC gamma control, when available. When controlling an X server with support for RandR 1.2, nvidia-settings will display the color correction widget as a tab within each display
     device page, instead of a per-X screen color correction page.
   * Fixed a bug that prevented the display palette from being updated immediately
     after an application called XStoreColors.
   * Added the ability to select and move X screens in the "X Server Display Configuration"
     page of nvidia-settings via Ctrl-(Left)Click + Drag.

Version: 304.37-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1 2012-08-19 23:08:44 UTC

 nvidia-graphics-drivers (304.37-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1) lucid; urgency=low
 .
   * Added support for the following GPUs:
      GeForce GTX 680M
      Quadro K1000M
      Quadro K2000M
      Tesla K10
   * Removed the ability to enable SLI on GPUs with ECC enabled.
   * Fixed several bugs that prevented some RandR transform geometries from
     being applied.
   * Fixed a bug that caused frequent hangs or crashes on some systems.
   * Fixed a bug that would cause corruption and performance issues in
     certain OpenGL applications such as Amnesia: The Dark Descent on
     GeForce 6 and 7 GPUs.
   * Fixed a bug that caused applications that use DirectColor visuals,
     such as Enemy Territory: Quake Wars and Braid, to appear in shades of blue
     instead of the correct colors.
   * Modified handling of RRSetScreenSize requests to ignore requests that do not actually resize the screen.This reduces screen flicker in certain
     cases when using GNOME.
   * Added a new option, "--disable-nouveau" to nvidia-installer. This option changes the action that is chosen by default when Nouveauis detected by nvidia-installer. If the "--disable-nouveau" optionis set, then the default will be to attempt to disable Nouveau when it is detected; otherwise,
     no attempt will be made unless requested.
   * Added support for xserver ABI 13 (xorg-server 1.13).
   * Added support for RandR per-CRTC gamma manipulation through the RandR 1.2
     RRGetCrtcGammaSize, RRGetCrtcGamma, and RRSetCrtcGamma requests.
   * Fixed a bug that caused RRSetOutputPrimary requests to incorrectly generate BadValue errors when setting the primary output to None.This caused gnome-settings-daemon to crash after changing the screen configuration in response to a display hotplug or the display change hot-key being pressed.
   * Fixed a problem where RENDER Glyphs operations would exhibit severe performance
     issues in certain cases, such as when used with gradients by Cairo and Chromium.
   * Fixed a bug that caused X to hang when resuming certain DisplayPort display
     devices (such as Apple brand mini-DisplayPort to dual-link DVI adapters)
     from power-saving mode.
   * Fixed a bug that caused an X screen to be extended to Quadro SDI Output devices by default. An X screen will still use an SDI Output device if it is the only display device available. To use a SDI Output device on an X screen with other display devices available, include the SDI Output device with either the "UseDisplayDevice" or "MetaMode" X configuration options.
   * Updated X11 modeline validation such that modes not defined in a display device's EDID are discarded if the EDID 1.3 "GTF Supported" flag is unset or if the EDID 1.4 "Continuous Frequency" flag is unset. The new "AllowNonEdidModes" token for the ModeValidationX configuration option can be used
     to disable this new check.
   * Fixed a bug, introduced in the 295.xx release series, with EDID detection on some laptop internal panels. This bug caused the laptop internal panel
     to show six small copies of the desktop.
   * Added support for FXAA, Fast Approximate Anti-Aliasing. Using regular anti-aliasing modes or Unified Back Buffers with FXAA is not currently supported.
   * Enhanced the functionality of the IncludeImplicitMetaModes X configuration option: Implicit MetaModes will be added for the primary display device,
     even if multiple display devices are in use when X is initialized.
     Implicit MetaModes will be added for common resolutions, even
     if there isn't a mode with that resolution in the mode pool of
     the display device.
 .
   * Extended the syntax of the IncludeImplicitMetaModes X
     configuration option, e.g., to control which display device is
     used for creation of implicit MetaModes.
 .
     See the description of the IncludeImplicitMetaModes X configuration
     option in the README for details.
 .
   * Modified the handling of the RandR 1.0/1.1 requests RRGetScreenInfo and RRSetScreenConfig (e.g., `xrandr -q --q1` and `xrandr --size ...` and `xrandr --orientation ...`) such that they operate on MetaModes. This was the behavior in NVIDIA X driver versions 295.xx and earlier, but 302.xx releases altered the handling of these RandR 1.0/1.1 requests to operate
     on a single RandR output's modes.
   * With the above changes to IncludeImplicitMetaModes and RandR 1.0/1.1 handling, fullscreen applications (e.g., SDL-based applications, Wine), should have more resolutions available to them, and should interact better
     with multiple monitor configurations.
   * Fixed a bug that could cause G8x, G9x, and GT2xx GPUs to display a black screen
     or corruption after waking up from suspend.
   * Fixed several bugs that could cause some OpenGL programs to hang when calling fork(3).
   * Fixed an nvidia-settings bug that caused the results of ProbeDisplays queries made with the --display-device-string option to be formatted incorrectly.
   * Improved the responsiveness of updates to the nvidia-settings control
     panel when displays are hotplugged.
   * Fixed a bug that caused display corruption when setting some transforms,
     especially when panning a transformed display.
   * Fixed a bug that caused extra RandR events to be generated the first time
     a display is hotplugged.
   * Fixed a bug that caused X11 modelines with '@' in their names to be rejected.
   * Added support for DisplayPort 1.2 branch devices, which allow multiple
     displays to be connected to a single DisplayPort connector on a graphics board.
   * Fixed a bug that caused most OpenGL texture uploads to be slow when the
     context was bound rendering to an RGB overlay drawable.
   * Fixed a bug that caused audio over HDMI to not work after restarting the X
     server on some MCP7x (IGP) GPUs.
   * Updated the X configuration option "UseDisplayDevice" to honor the value
     "none" on any GPU.
   * Added support for DKMS in nvidia-installer. Installing the kernel module through DKMS allows the module to be rebuilt automatically when changing to a different Linux kernel. See the README and the nvidia-installer help
     text for the "--dkms" option.
   * Added RandR output properties _ConnectorLocation, ConnectorNumber, ConnectorType, EDID, _GUID, and SignalFormat. See the README for details on
     these properties.
   * Extended support for Base Mosaic to all G80+ SLI configurations with up
     to three displays.
   * Fixed a bug that caused some monitors to fail to wake from DPMS suspend
     mode when multiple DisplayPort monitors were attached to one GPU.
   * Removed controls for XVideo attributes from the "X Server XVideo Settings" page of the nvidia-settings control panel. XVideo attributes can be configured in XVideo player applications, or through utilities such as xvattr.
   * Fixed a bug that caused all ports on an XVideo adaptor to share color
     correction settings.
   * Removed support for the following X configuration options:
      SecondMonitorHorizSync
      SecondMonitorVertRefresh
      Similar control is available through the NVIDIA HorizSync and
      VertRefresh X configuration options. Please see the NVIDIA driver
      README for details.
   * Fixed a bug that prevented NVIDIA 3D Vision Pro from working properly when
     switching between X servers on different VTs.
   * Added support for desktop panning when rotation, reflection, or transformation is applied to a display device (either through RandR or through
     the MetaMode syntax); panning would previously be ignored in that case.
   * Implemented hotfix for a privilege escalation vulnerability reported on
     August 1, 2012. For more details, see:
