    yes Plagman told me on IRC that this one is fixed in the 180.x branch.

    I haven't experienced the performance issue with 177 vs 173 drivers (tried lightsmark - 90fps with 173, 110 with 177), but I did hear others complaining about it too though.

    I still get horrible framerates with ETQW in all distros I tried with my computer and this driver, the same as before.

    no compiz here.

    I've a Nvidia 7800 GTX PCIe (maybe it helps)...others having problems, too.

    simple search at http://community.enemyterritory.com/forums for "nvidia" you'll find various threads...(some ppl mentioned that they only have that problem when they use a combo: a specified kernel version and the nvidia 177.80 driver)

    Very interesting release notes. Every performance option for KDE4 now enabled by default + new VDPAU API.
