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.

    How does our economy that is current has an effect on the way debt-collection organizations execute?

    As individuals' debt increases in a tough market, US debt-collection organizations
    are experiencing an increased quantity of assigned balances.
    Does this imply there is certainly a high rate of return with their clients?
    No, maybe not necessarily. To some, it might look such as the sector is flourishing mainly because of the high increase in bad
    debt. But...this sort of economy additionally produces a harder environment for
    bad debt recovery.

    First of all I would like to say excellent
    blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I've had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.

    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    suggestions or hints? Many thanks!
