NVIdia Linux Driver 295.49 Released

NVidia has released an update for Linux Driver (295.49). This brings new support for GeForce GTX 690 and also fixed performance regression found on previous release (295.40) which i posted on this SlackBlogs as well : Do Not Use NVidia Driver 295.40. This driver also fixed a problem where starting, stopping, and moving OpenGL application windows was very slow on Quadro FX 4600, Quadro FX 5600, GeForce 8800 GTX, GeForce 8800 GTS, and GeForce 8800 Ultra.

I have confirmed that this driver works as intended. I can freely use my desktop as it used to be, so it's recommended to upgrade to this version if you are using a modern NVidia GPU.
