Linux x86

Linux x64



Release Highlights:

· Added support for the following new GPUs:

GeForce GTX 260

GeForce GTX 280

· Improved support for RENDER masks, as well as RENDER repeating

modes and transformations, for video memory pixmaps.

· Added accelerated support for RENDER convolution filters for

video memory pixmaps on GeForce 8, 9 and GTX GPUs.

· Added an 'AllowSHMPixmaps' X configuration option, which can

be used to prevent applications from using shared memory

pixmaps; the latter may cause some optimizations in the NVIDIA

X driver to be disabled.

· Added support for DisplayPort display devices (including 30-bit devices).

· Resolved various stability problems on GeForce 8, 9 and GTX

GPUs, as well as some GeForce 6 and 7 PCI-E GPUs.

· Fixed a bug that resulted in GPU errors when changing the

TwinView display configuration while using Compiz.

· Further improved the error recovery paths taken in case of GPU

command stream corruption.

· Removed an old workaround that caused incorrect fake Xinerama

information to be reported after enabling a second

TwinView display.

· Fixed the subpicture component order reported by the NVIDIA

X driver's XvMC implementation.

· Fixed a problem that could result in IRQs being disabled

on some multi-GPU SMP configurations.

· Worked around cache flushing problems (on some Linux kernels)

that caused corruption and stability problems.

· Added experimental support for PCI-E MSI.

· Improved compatibility with recent Linux 2.6 kernels.
