195.30 (beta) for Linux x86/x86_64 released
 
Release highlights:
  • Fixed a performance regression with non-antialiased text in KDE4.
  • Enabled GPU acceleration for many RENDER compositing operations that were previously processed in software, including conjoint and disjoint blending modes and component alpha blending.
  • Added experimental GPU acceleration of the RENDER CompositeTrapezoids operation. This can be enabled at runtime by running:

    nvidia-settings -a AccelerateTrapezoids=1

    This is only supported on the GeForce GTX series or newer products.
  • Fixed a bug in the VDPAU overlay-based presentation queue that caused high CPU usage during "put bits" operations when more than two surfaces were queued.
  • Updated `nvidia-settings --query all` to report all available attributes queryable through all NV-CONTROL target types.
The 195.30 NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Graphics Driver Set for Linux/x86 is available for download via FTP and HTTP.
