nvidia-graphics-drivers (270.18-0ubuntu1~xup3) natty; urgency=low

  * New upstream beta release. Changes:
    - Updated the NVIDIA kernel module to ensure that all system memory
      allocated by it for use with GPUs or within user-space components of
      the NVIDIA driver stack is initialized to zero. A new NVIDIA kernel
      module option, InitializeSystemMemoryAllocations, allows
      administrators to revert to the previous behavior.
    - Added preliminary support for xserver 1.10.
    - Reorganized the NVIDIA driver's /proc file system layout to better
    - reflect current needs: /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0..N has been
      moved to /proc/driver/nvidia/gpus/0..N/information
    - Added new shared library:
      NVML provides programmatic access to static information and
      monitoring data for NVIDIA GPUs, as well as limited managment
      capabilities. It is intended for use with Tesla compute products.
    - Added a new X configuration option "3DVisionDisplayType" to specify
      the display type when NVIDIA 3D Vision is enabled with a non 3D
      Vision ready display.
    - Fixed several bugs relating to hardware-accelerated gradients, which
      were causing visual corruption in some of the default Ubuntu GNOME
    - Modified colormap updates to no longer be synchronized to vblank. This
      allows applications to send XStoreColor and XStoreColors requests faster
      than the screen's refresh rate.
  * Install links.
  * Drop X ABI provides because it works with multiple video ABI's.
