Nvidia 310.19 Video Driver for Linux Supports OpenGL 4.3

A few minutes ago, November 16, Nvidia released version 310.19 of its graphics driver for Linux, Solaris and FreeBSD operating systems.

Nvidia 310.19 brings support for OpenGL 4.3, support for configuring stereo audio in nvidia-settings, support for configuring the ViewPortOut and ViewPortIn for monitors in nvidia-settings, adds a new option in nvidia-settings, called 'UseHotplugEvents', to allow suppression of RandR events when non-DisplayPort displays are removed or added, support for configuring reflection and rotation per monitor in nvidia-settings, support for HDMI 3D Stereo output (supporting Quadro Kepler and later GPUs).

Moreover, Nvidia 310.19 adds experimental support for OpenGL threaded optimizations, which can be enabled using the __GL_THREADED_OPTIMIZATIONS environment variable, as well as unofficial support for the GLX protocol, such as GLX indirect rendering, to be used in the GL_ARB_pixel_buffer_object OpenGL extension.

Last but not least, this new release of the Nvidia video driver brings improved the responsiveness and performance of OpenGL apps that run on top of the Unity session of Ubuntu-based operating systems.

For more details about Nvidia 310.19 graphics driver please take a look at the official changelog.

    Hey! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website such
    as yours take a large amount of work? I'm completely new to running a blog but I do write in my journal daily.
    I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share
    my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for
    brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    Whats up this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
    or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no
    coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with
    experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Usually, should you hang your linens up, they are going to
    stay within the room, but should you leave them on the floor, the
    maids will take them and give you clean ones.
