Fixed a bug that sometimes caused the display layout area of the nvidia-settings control panel to be laid out incorrectly.
Fixed a bug that prevented panning from working correctly after a modeswitch on some X servers with support for cursor constraining.
Gamma ramp and colormap adjustments now apply correctly when screen transformations such as rotation and keystone correction are in use.
Fixed RandR per-CRTC gamma persistence across modeswitches and VT-switches.
Fixed a bug that caused the X server to sometimes hang in response to input events.
Fixed a reduction in rendering performance for core X11 rendering on certain GPUs that occurred in the 290.series of releases.

Not fixed for me!
304.51 does not store color settings anywhere; I don't find them in $HOME/.nvidia-settings-rc.
After rebooting the computer, settings are lost.

But do the color controls work? The fix doesn't say anything about saving.

Yes, the color controls work, but all changes are lost after rebooting.

With 304.37 (or older), in $HOME/.nvidia-settings-rc you can find, for example:
Code:
0/RedBrightness=0.000000
0/GreenBrightness=0.000000
0/BlueBrightness=0.000000
0/RedContrast=0.000000
0/GreenContrast=0.000000
0/BlueContrast=0.000000
0/RedGamma=1.000000
0/GreenGamma=1.000000
0/BlueGamma=1.000000
I have tried to manually add those lines to $HOME/.nvidia-settings-rc, but the NVIDIA X Server Settings panel (while it is running) deletes them.
