    Who cares, it works. In the end that's what most end users care about.

    Now i only wait for updates for 71, 96 and 173 series for 2.6.30. Then nvidia would be ready for next kernel round.

    Not really, pretty much every release had non VDPAU fixes as well. There were just alot of VDPAU fixes included as well as would be expected in a newly developed feature.

    Seems like Nvidia's new way of releasing beta and half-tested (pre-releases) drivers are here to stay so maybe we shouldn't be so surprised about it. The headline for this article could perhaps have mentioned which set of drivers (beta, pre-release or stable) that has been updated.

    Hopefully this will spur on the other team making closed-source unix drivers, or at least fend of any talks about cutting back on driver development.
    Time for a RSS feed!
