The nvidia-settings utility is a tool for configuring the NVIDIA
Linux graphics driver.  It operates by communicating with the NVIDIA
X driver, querying and updating state as appropriate.  This
communication is done with the NV-CONTROL X extension.
Values such as brightness and gamma, XVideo attributes, temperature,
and OpenGL settings can be queried and configured via nvidia-settings.

nvidia-settings (319.60-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release 319.60.
- Fixed a bug that caused the GPU and Memory clock frequencies for some
PowerMizer performance levels on Kepler boards to be reported incorrectly
in the nvidia-settings control panel.
* New upstream release 319.49.
* 08_fix_format-security: Refresh patch, most occurrences fixed upstream.
* Build for armhf, too.
* Add lintian overrides for missing upstream changelog.
* Merge changes from 313.30-2.

nvidia-settings (319.32-1) experimental; urgency=low
* New upstream release 319.32.
- Updated the nvidia-settings control panel to report more detailed
clocking information.
- Fixed a bug that could cause nvidia-settings to crash when switching
VTs after changing some settings.
- Added a "Prefer Consistent Performance" PowerMizer Mode to the
nvidia-settings control panel, available on Quadro boards that
support this feature.

nvidia-settings (319.17-1) experimental; urgency=low
* New upstream release 319.17.  (Closes: #708570)
- Updated nvidia-settings to preserve the relative positioning of displays
when changing from a layout where multiple displays are on the same X
screen to one where the same displays span multiple X screens.
- Fixed nvidia-settings to dlopen(3) "libvdpau.so.1", rather than
* New upstream release 319.12.
- Added an Underscan feature in the nvidia-settings X Server
Display Configuration page which allows the configuration of an
underscan border around the ViewPortOut.  This feature was
formerly known as Overscan Compensation.
- Updated the nvidia-settings command line interface to accept display
device names, as well as optional target qualifiers, e.g.
nvidia-settings -q [DVI-I-0]/RefreshRate
nvidia-settings -q [GPU-1.DVI_I-1]/RefreshRate
- Updated the nvidia-settings command line interface to no longer assume
the "X screen 0" target, when no target is specified in query and assign
operations.  Instead, all valid targets of the attribute are processed.
- Added a VDPAU page to the nvidia-settings control panel, to display
information about the decoding capabilities of VDPAU-capable GPUs.
* Refresh/update patches 06_fix_typos, 07_fix_hyphenation,
* New patch 08_fix_format-security: Fix -Werror=format-security errors.
