"Just shy of a month ago was when NVIDIA last released a
proprietary Linux driver, at which point they also released a
second driver that was their OpenGL 4.1 preview driver. This
Saturday though NVIDIA has provided a new driver release, which is
tagged as the 256.52 pre-release. This new Linux driver release
isn't overly exciting, but it does carry some prominent fixes that
will please some NVIDIA customers.
"The NVIDIA Linux 256.52 driver does not provide OpenGL 4.1
support, does not provide OpenCL 1.1 support (their early OpenCL
1.1 Linux drivers available to developers are in the 258.xx release
stream), and does not offer CoolBits overclocking for GeForce GTX
400 series "Fermi" hardware."
