This latest driver update arrives only a day after the previous Beta release, which caused quite a stir because it featured the option to overclock the video card. It may not seem like much but, in fact, this is actually great progress for the NVIDIA drivers.
The new feature is untested and it’s not present in the current NVIDIA release from t…

The first GNOME event on the USA West Coast starts today. Held in San Francisco, the GNOME West Coast Summit brings together many senior members of the project for high-level technical discussions and planning. Major topics on the agenda for the event include Wayland, KDbus, application sandboxing, and application developer experience.
The summit is a great opportunity for those on the West Coast to get involved in ongoing GNOME initiatives. Participants from Intel, Red Hat, Yorba, Google, Endless Mobile and Elementary OS will be in attendance.
Several open evening events have been organized to coincide with the summit. On Wednesday there will be a local community meet-up, then on Thursday there will be another evening event at Noisebridge. Anyone in the local area should feel free to stop by – details are on the wiki.
Many thanks to Endless Mobile for providing the venue for the event.
