    Default 180.51 for Linux x86/x86-64 released

    FYI a new pre release was made available yesterday

    Release Highlights:
    • Added support for the following GPUs:

      • GeForce GTS 250
      • GeForce GT 130
      • GeForce GT 140

    • Updated nvidia-bug-report.sh to compress its log file; running `nvidia-bug-report.sh` now produces "nvidia-bug-report.log.gz".

    • Fixed an interaction problem that could corrupt the EDID of the Fujitsu Technology Solutions Celsius H270 notebook's internal flatpanel.
    • Fixed occasional X driver memory management performance problems when a composite manager is running.
    • Fixed a bug that could interfere with the detection of display devices attached to secondary GPUs when first starting X after cold boots.
    • Fixed a problem that could result in temporary stalls when moving OpenGL application windows on GeForce 8 and later GPUs.
    • Fixed a bug that prevented VGA fonts from being saved/restored correctly on GeForce 8 and later GPUs.
    • Improved compatibility with recent Linux kernels.
    • Reduced CPU usage of nvidia-smi utility for reporting Quadro Plex information.

    I've had little stutters on my iMac (9,1) (Geforce 9400M). Every 20 seconds or so, the system skips. Will the fix in the third bullet point address this?
