    First impressions;

    Very nice update to the nvidia driver

    - Smooth scrolling in Firefox 19 with youtube/flash videos
    - Noticeable visual/performance improvement in at least one H/W accelerated VM (in VMWARE) so far
    - XBMC is snappier
    - No noticeable regressions compared 304.51

    I haven't dug much deeper, nor tested against certain apps but so far so good.

    apparently not. I noticed that too, as i had to modify a PKGBUILD (Archlinux) since it failed at the point it was supposed to install libxvmcnvidia (and subsequently after, when trying to modify it's permissions).

    Are you from the future or is Mozilla that ahead with their experimental releases?

    Anyway, with gmod 13 now working with latest wine and this new driver, I might have a fun week ;D

    I use Firefox-Nightly (which is currently 19a01)...

    the smooth scrolling + video is definitely a result of the latest nvidia driver though ~ it's really nice to have this in place now, it had to be one of the more annoying mis-features.

    HDMI 3D Stereo is still Quadro-only feature, or GeForce's is supported now too?

    None of that cards that are supported by this driver ever utilized libXvMCNVIDIA. The last cards that could use it were the GF7 series.

    this is what it says in NVIDIA_changelog;

    * Added support for HDMI 3D Stereo with Quadro Kepler and later GPUs. See
    the documentation for the "Stereo" X configuration option in the README
    for details.

    which refers to cards like the Quadro-k5000, which is a kepler-based Quadro card.

    This driver fixes VDPAU under KDE. Well, almost; mplayer2 crashes when going from fullscreen back to windowed mode.

    GL VSync is still broken though. Launch a GL app with VSync enabled and the whole desktop, including the mouse cursor itself, begins to stutter like crazy.

    Do you have the KWin patch referenced there applied?

    It would also cause choppiness in general.

    Like I said, stick to the f u posts. Because with each post containing more than that, you show yourself more and more clueless. Here you've demonstrated lack of reading comprehension.
