Some screenshots of the nvidia-settings panel can be found here.

According to NVIDIA version 1.0-6106 offers the following new features:

* Added support for GeForce 6800 series of GPUs
* Added support for PCI-Express
* Added support for GLSL (OpenGL Shading Language).
* Added support for GL_EXT_pixel_buffer_object.
* Fixed problem that prevented 32-bit kernel driver from running on certain AMD64 CPUs.
* Added support for ACPI
* Added support for 4kstack kernels.
* Added configuration utility "nvidia-settings". For details, see the user guide
* Added a shell script "nvidia-bug-report.sh" that gathers system configuration information into a log file; the resulting log file (nvidia-bug-report.log) should be included when reporting bugs to NVIDIA.
* Added a new Xv adaptor on GeForce4 and GeForce FX which uses the 3D engine to do Xv PutImage requests.
* View the README (Text Version) for more information on this release.
