What's New:
  • Updated the nvidia-settings control panel to report more detailed locking information.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the X server to crash after power-cycling displays connected behind a DisplayPort 1.2 Multi-Stream Transport hub.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause nvidia-settings to crash when switching VTs after changing some settings.
  • Updated the application profile syntax to allow for multiple patterns within a single rule. See the README for details.
  • Fixed a bug that caused OpenGL programs to crash when the __GL_DOOM3 environment variable was set.
  • Fixed a performance regression in MEDINA 8.2.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the OpenGL driver to hang sometimes when running the SpeedTree Modeler application.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause an OpenGL application to crash if it creates and destroys multiple threads.
  • Fixed a bug that caused corrupted window content in some cases when moving GLX windows with antialiasing enabled.
  • Fixed a bug that caused DisplayPort devices that failed link training to be reported as connected rather than disconnected.
  • Fixed a regression that could cause a DisplayPort device that was connected to one connector to turn off when a DisplayPort device on a different connector was connected or disconnected.
  • On Kepler-based GPUs, improved the appearance of the tearing that occurs when using RandR 1.4's Source Output capability.While tearing is still expected, the tears should now appear as horizontal
  • lines rather than more noticeable checkerboard or triangular shapes.
  • Added a "Prefer Consistent Performance" PowerMizer Mode to the nvidia-settings control panel, available on Quadro boards that support this feature.
  • Added 64-bit versions of nvidia-settings, nvidia-xconfig, and libnvidia-cfg to the Solaris driver package.
