cant be the same cause noone got that good values at DrawingArea Lines/Circles in 177.76.

if you would read the changelog you would notice that those 2 things were fixed.

They might be the same as they were before the regression, but they're still pretty slow compared to the free nvidia driver. I'm getting ~130seconds on X2 4800+ with a 8800GTS. on the "nvidia" driver it's closer to 70.

Huh? The "nv" driver is the free one, "nvidia" is the proprietary one. And for what it's worth, my gtkperf results (with an 8800GTS G92) with the "nvidia" driver are fastest now with 177.78 at 35 seconds for 1000 rounds.

For some people OPEN (which is just a mess in this case) driver is faster than closed one. Both are free...
