  * SECURITY UPDATE: ARGB Cursor Buffer Overflow in "NoScanout" Mode
    - CVE-2013-0131

  * New upstream release
    - Fixed CVE-2013-0131:
      NVIDIA UNIX GPU Driver ARGB Cursor Buffer Overflow in
      "NoScanout" Mode. This buffer overflow, which occurred
      when an X client installed a large ARGB cursor on an
      X server running in NoScanout mode, could cause a denial
      of service (e.g., an X server segmentation fault), or
      could be exploited to achieve arbitrary code execution.

  * debian/substvars:
    - Add support for xorg-video-abi-14.
    - Drop versioned dependency on xserver-xorg-core.

Binary packages built by this source

nvidia-current: NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library

 The binary driver provide optimized hardware acceleration of OpenGL
 applications via a direct-rendering X Server. AGP, PCIe, SLI, TV-out
 and flat panel displays are also supported.
 This package also includes the source for building the kernel module
 required by the Xorg driver, and provides NVIDIA's implementation of
 the Video Decode and presentation API. The latter enables acceleration
 for GeForce 8 and later series cards for h264 video.
 GPUs such as GeForce series 6 or newer are supported.
 See /usr/share/doc/nvidia-current/README.txt.gz for a complete list
 of supported GPUs and PCIIDs

nvidia-current-dev: NVIDIA binary Xorg driver development files

 This package contains the NVIDIA binary Xorg driver
 development files.
