The NVIDIA 180.22 Linux driver was released less than three weeks ago, but today NVIDIA has released a new 180.xx display driver update. In addition, NVIDIA has updated all three of their legacy display drivers.

The new mainline NVIDIA driver released is version 180.25 and it brings a whole slew of fixes. A bulk of the fixes in the 180.25 driver pertains to VDPAU, or the Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix. The VDPAU fixes in this proprietary Linux driver update range from fixing a green screen to improved handling of mode switches to crashes when using DisplayPort devices. There is also improved error checking in the NVIDIA driver's VDPAU implementation. Furthermore, the 180.25 driver brings improved GPU video memory management between the NVIDIA driver and VDPAU.

Outside of the video realm, the NVIDIA 180.25 display driver promises improved workstation OpenGL performance. This driver also has a few hotkey switching improvements for mobile NVIDIA GPUs. Lastly, there is improved support for the latest Linux 2.6 kernels in this release. What the NVIDIA 180.25 Linux driver lacks, however, is official support for X Server 1.6.
