NVIDIA 319.12 Beta graphics driver: could be of interest for Optimus users.
 
I just saw this article on phoronix.com which could be of interest for Slackers owning a laptop including an Optimus device.

For details, see Chapter 32 of the readme (including the Caveats at end of page).

You can try it only on -current as xrandr-1.4 is needed.

Weeeeeelllll - the statement does at least say "initial work". It's a long way off from being anything useful. With any luck it will get some decent features - but for now it looks like a hack, and a poor one at that. Not often that a genuine open-source product (bumble-bee) offers better functionality before the proprietary stuff, but that sure is the case here. Will watch this, but won't touch yet.
