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 GeForce 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

nvidia-graphics-drivers (304.84-0ubuntu1~quantal~xup1) quantal; 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
* 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.

nvidia-graphics-drivers (304.64-0ubuntu1~quantal~xup1) quantal; urgency=low
* Added support for the following GPUs:
* 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
* 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.
