      no i meant installing it on 3.11 without patching the driver, would be that hard to incule the patch inside the driver since its what? 2 or 3 lines of code?

        I really don't this is something worth complaining about. It will surely be included in the next driver (both stable and beta) and could've have just been a "timing issue" on the release schedule of this beta, or something like that.

        and actually, it touches 1 line of code;
