Default Changelog for driver 185.13

I can't find a changelog in the announcement posts for driver 185.13, the latest beta release. What features/fixes can we expect from this driver series?

I found two new X config options in the README but that's about it.

Option "AllowUnofficialGLXProtocol" "boolean"
and
Option "PanAllDisplays" "boolean"

Hello all,

I too miss the changelog - however, I gave the driver a try.

Desktop Effects are even more fluent than with the 180-line of drivers,

VDPAU seems to have become a bit faster, but this might also be the case because of the recent reboot (ans thus freed Video-RAM).

However, high activity in Terminals still give me a high Xorg-Load and produces sometimes choppy playback of videos. This might also be a fault of compiz, however.

Standby is still working, too .

All in all, I am very happy with this release - if it proves to be stable, that is. But even if it's not, it's yet to evolve to a stable driver and might be stable then .

You can use meld or whatever else to compare the last README to the newest. It probably won't tell much about fixes...

Thanks, I think I will give it a try after all. It'd still be nice if Nvidia listed an official changelog, though.

It works as advertised. ~5% CPU with Compiz enabled instead of 50%+. I think that's the last nVidia driver quirk I knew about. For now.

Thanks proprietary nVidia team.

Does 185.13 work with xserver 1.6?
