,----[ Quote ]
| After quite a long development period, 
| Nvidia finally decided to make Linux users 
| happy again, by releasing a few minutes ago 
| a brand-new and improved version of its 
| graphics driver, Nvidia 190.42. As you see 
| in the title, the big news is that Nvidia 
| 190.42 now supports OpenGL 3.2. But, it also 
| introduces support for the following video 
| cards: GeForce G102M, GeForce GT 220, 
| GeForce G210, GeForce G210M, GeForce GT 
| 230M, GeForce GT 240M, GeForce GTS 250M and 
| GeForce GTS 260M.

ATI Catalyst Linux Display Driver 9.10

,----[ Quote ]
| AMD has released a new driver for ATI 
| Radeon-chipsets, version 9.10. This driver 
| is suitable for 32bit, or 64bit Linux 
| versions.


Gone are the days of graphics card issues.


Linux 2.6.32-rc5

,----[ Quote ]
| As mentioned in the -rc4 notes, this was a
| short week for the -rc series, since I'm
| leaving for the yearly kernel summit tomorrow
| morning. And obviously a lot of other kernel
| maintainers have left or will be leaving
| shortly, so I'd expect/hope that next week
| will be quiet too.
| 90% of the bulk of the changes since -rc4 are
| in drivers, with most of it coming from two
| new network drivers (stmmac and vmxnet3). But
| apart from the new drivers, there's almost 300
| commits in there, and most of them are pretty
| spread our random one- (or few-) liners: arch
| updates (arm, powerpc, x86), some filesystem
| updates (mainly btrfs), and some
| documentation, networking etc.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
