Bumblebee 3.2 is officially released. It has lot of new bug fixes and two new features. Very soon the new packages will be available (PPA for Ubuntu, etc.).

One new feature is to start optirun without any render bridge (-b is added), useful for nvidia-settings command (optirun -b none nvidia-settings -c :8) . Second feature is the --no-xorg option for optirun to disable starting secondary X server. This is handy for CUDA or OpenCL applications that do not need the graphics rendering capabilities.

You can try to install the new Nvidia Beta drivers, 319.12, but is currently not advised (it can cause lower performance). However the new driver is supported and will not break Bumblebee, it will be auto-detected.

Have fun!
