    Any updates on the experimental reclocking support for Kepler GPUs via NvReclock? Wasn't this supposed to land in 3.16?

      It’s great to see work being done on wifi drivers. Wifi support has been troublesome for me in the past. (Even my current – third – wifi dongle requires energy saving to be disabled in order to work fine.)

        I just tried enabling power saving again, and it doesn’t seem to cause the log spam and bad connection problems I had before. The only little problem is the ping goes from 0.5 ms to 8-10 ms.

          Aww crap, I thought that the drivers for the rtl8192ee chipset would be available in 3.15. Oh well, I'll have to use the usb dongle for another 2 months. Great news that support is coming, grateful for that!

            This news blurb was about the staging area. The 3.16 merge windows is still open for a while and I don't think the nouveau folk(s) have pushed their changes yet...
