Release Highlights

  • Added support for the following GPUs:
    • GeForce GT 740A
    • GeForce GT 745A
    • GeForce GT 755M
    • GeForce GT 625
    • GeForce GTX 645
    • GRID K340
    • GRID K350
    • NVS 315
    • Quadro K500M
  • Fixed a bug that caused DisplayPort monitors connected to Quadro FX 3800, 4800, or 5800 to remain off after DPMS.
  • Added the NVIDIA OpenGL-based Inband Frame Readback (NvIFROpenGL) libraryto the Linux driver package. This library provides a high performance, low latency interface to capture and optionally encode an individual OpenGL framebuffer. NvIFROpenGL captures pixels rendered by OpenGL only and is ideally suited to application capture and remoting.
  • Fixed a bug that caused applications using CUDA-GL interop to crash when run on X servers with Xinerama enabled.
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent some double-bit ECC errors from being properly reported.
  • Fixed a bug which could cause a blank screen when changing house syncs ettings on Quadro Kepler GPUs with Quadro Sync boards.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented nested loops with identical loop conditions in GLSL shaders from terminating correctly. This could cause hangs in applications such as Exa PowerVIZ.
  • Fixed a bug that resulted in corrupt texels when a previously empty texture image was specified with glXBindTexImageEXT. In GNOME 3, this caused gnome-screenshot to produce garbled window screenshots.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the X server to crash when querying the current mode of disabled displays.
