  • Fixed a bug that caused VDPAU to hang when expanding the YouTube Flash Player.

  • Updated nvidia-settings to use RandR per-CRTC gamma control, when available. When controlling an X server with support for RandR 1.2, nvidia-settings will display the color correction widget as a tab within each display device page, instead of a per-X screen color correction page.

  • Added the ability to select and move X screens in the “X Server Display Configuration” page of nvidia-settings via Ctrl-(Left)Click + Drag.
