    Release highlights since 195.36.03:
    Added support for the following GPUs:
    Quadro FX 880M
    GeForce GTS 350M
    GeForce GTS 360M
    Fixed a bug that caused screen corruption after an application released a GLX_NV_present_video device.
    Fixed an X server crash caused by starting nvidia-settings while X was not on the active VT.
    Fixed brightness control hotkeys on some laptops.
    Fixed an nvidia-settings bug that produced many "Bad argument" warning messages when running nvidia-settings --query all.
    Fixed an installer bug that produced the following message:
    WARNING: Unable to perform the runtime configuration check for library
    '' ('/usr/lib/'); assuming successful installation.
    Fixed a bug that caused G-Sync stereo synchronization to fail sometimes when enabling frame lock.
    Fixed a bug that caused OpenGL applications to occasionally crash with "double free or corruption" messages when exiting.
    On GPUs with VDPAU feature set A, enhanced VDPAU's handling of some corrupted or incorrectly formatted MPEG-1/2 streams. This solves a reported issue with "0testbad.mpg".
    Fixed a bug in the VDPAU video mixer that caused chroma aberrations, and corruption in the right-hand few columns of pixels, when post- processing video surfaces with widths not an exact multiple of 4 pixels.
    Fixed a bug that prevented the GPUFanControlState attribute from being set on the nvidia-settings command line.
