Fixed a bug in MetaMode tracking that could cause spurious error
messages to be printed when attempting to add or delete Metamodes via
Fixed a bug that caused the NVIDIA X driver to attempt to load the X11
"shadow" module unconditionally, even in situations where the driver had no
need to use the module. This could result in the printing of spurious error
messages, on X servers where the module was not present.
Fixed a bug that prevented display configuration changes made with
xvidtune(1) from working correctly.
Fixed a bug that occasionally caused display corruption in GLX
applications while changing the display configuration.
Fixed a bug that prevented glReadPixels from working correctly when
reading from Pixel Buffer Objects over indirect rendering, when the image
width is not a multiple of 4.
Added a new NV-CONTROL attribute, NV_CTRL_BACKLIGHT_BRIGHTNESS, for
controlling backlight brightness.
Fixed a bug that prevented nvidia-settings from creating display device
configuration pages for newly connected DisplayPort 1.2 Multi Stream
Transport downstream devices.
Added GPU utilization reporting to the nvidia-settings control panel.
Fixed a bug in the nvidia-settings control panel that prevented users
from configuring stereo, when stereo was not already configured.
Added support for reporting the tachometer-measured fan speed on capable
graphics boards via nvidia-settings and the NV-CONTROL API. The preexisting
mechanism for reporting fan speed reports the speed of the fan as programmed
by the driver.
For example, `nvidia-settings --query=[fan:0]/GPUCurrentFanSpeedRPM`.
Fixed a regression that caused GPUs that do not support graphics to not
appear in nvidia-settings.
Fixed a bug that caused DisplayPort 1.2 multi-stream devices to stop
working if they were unplugged and plugged back in while they were active in
the current MetaMode.
Added support for multiple NVIDIA kernel modules. This feature allows
users to assign different GPUs in the system to different NVIDIA kernel
modules, potentially reducing the software overhead of coordinating access
to multiple GPUs.
Added support for the EGL API on 32-bit platforms. Currently, the
supported client APIs are OpenGL ES 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0, and the only supported
window system backend is X11.
Add a new option, AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration, which allows the X
server to start even if no connected display devices are detected at
startup. This option can be enabled by running "sudo nvidia-xconfig
Added a system memory cache to improve the performance of certain X
rendering operations that use software rendering fallbacks. The X
configuration option "SoftwareRenderCacheSize" may be used to configure the
size of the cache.
Removed the "DynamicTwinView" X configuration option: dynamic
reconfiguration of displays is always possible, and can no longer be
Fixed a bug that caused nvidia-settings to display incorrect information
in its display configuration page when all displays on an X screen were
