We did some tests with the currently released display driver (177.41) within windows (32bit) and encountered much more stable applications. Mandelbrot does still lock up the computer but still our programs seem to work with the new drivers. Just for everybody having problems -> try the current windows release of the display drivers and report if the problems are gone or not.
As our development is mostly done on Linux we are very keen on seeing an updated and more stable version for the display driver there. At best for Ubuntu 8.04 ;-). So enough for the wishlist and we hope that our work can finally be tested on the new cards.
Ah yes one last question: Why is the display driver version not consistent on the different sites? www.nvidia.com gives for Win XP the 177.41 and on developer.nvidia.com the 177.35 is suggested.
