    I don't own any "Fermi" cards yet so can't check, but does this new driver fix the crippled OpenGL performance that has been reported? Thinking specifically of Blender here.

    Thumbs up Alright!

    Did I misread something here, or does the article say that the new NVIDIA driver offers new bugs?

    The NVIDIA 280.13 driver offers support for new ASICs (the GeForce GTX 570M/580M), various GLX bugs, an X driver bug, new GLX protocol support, and various other fixes.

    * Fixed a GLX bug that could cause the X server to crash when
    rendering a display list using GLX indirect rendering.

    * Fixed a GLX bug that could cause a hang in applications that
    use X server grabs.

    * Fixed an X driver bug that caused 16x8 stipple patterns to
    be rendered incorrectly.
