Release Highlights:
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.
Added support for OpenGL 4.3.
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.

This does not work on my system any more.
After updating to this new driver, the brightness control does not work any more.
The notbook display is very dark, nearly unreadable.

I use a HP Compaq 8710w notebook with a quadro fx 1600 builtin nvidia card.

With driver 304.51 everything was fine.
I could adjust brightness with the appropriate keys on the notebook keyboard.

it seems, that with driver 304.51 the nvidia-driver or the X system (i don't know) thinks, that the notebook display has no backlight/brightness-control, because the command "xrandr --verbose" shows:
Code:

LVDS-0 connected 1680x1050+0+0 (0x27b) normal (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 365mm x 228mm
        Identifier: 0x27a
        Timestamp:  8936
        Subpixel:  unknown
        Gamma:      1.0:1.0:1.0
        Brightness: 1.0

and the brightness is at it's maximum.

but with this new driver xrandr also shows a backlight range value from 0 - 100. but even when set to 100 the notebook display remains dark and the appropriate keys on the notebook keyboard do nothing.

so for me, it would be better, if this new support for the "Backlight" RandR output property will be removed....

Ungine Heaven fails to find the tessellation feature with this driver:

Unknown command "d3d11_render_use_tessellation"

:(

I have the same issue on my Dell Vostro 1500 with a GeForce 8600m GT. On my system, however, brightness is not controlled by the GPU and nothing about backlight ever shows up in xrandr's output.
