Fixes

  • Added support for the following GPUs:
    • GeForce GTX TITAN Z GeForce GT 740 GeForce 830M GeForce 840M GeForce 845M GeForce GTX 850M
  • Fixed a bug that caused X to crash when querying clock offsets for non-existent performance levels.
  • Fixed a performance regression when running KDE with desktop effects using the OpenGL compositing backend.
  • Fixed a bug that caused duplicate entries to appear in some dropdown menus in the "Application Profiles" page of nvidia-settings.
  • Fixed a regression that could cause OpenGL rendering corruption on X screens with 30 bit per pixel color.
  • Fixed a bug causing mode validation to fail for 4K resolutions over HDMI in certain situations.
  • Added nvidia-settings command line controls for over- and under-clocking attributes.  Please see the nvidia-settings(1) manual page for more details.
  • Fixed several cosmetic issues in the clock control user interface of nvidia-settings.
  • Added support for the GLX_EXT_stereo_tree extension.  For more details, see the extension specification:
    • http://www.opengl.org/registry/specs/EXT/glx_stereo_tree.txt
  • Enabled support for using Unified Back Buffer (UBB) and 3D Stereo with the composite extension on Quadro cards.  Using stereo with a composite manager requires a stereo-aware composite manager.  Otherwise, only the left eye of stereo applications will be displayed.  See the GLX_EXT_stereo_tree extension specification for more details.
