NVIDIA Puts Out A New Driver Pre-Release (304.48)
NVIDIA has released a new Linux graphics driver in the 304.xx series, which means the GeForce 6/7 series support is still there, while adding in some new improvements.
Compared to the current 304.43 Linux driver, the 304.48 driver offers:
- Fixed RandR per-CRTC gamma persistence across modeswitches and VT-switches.
- An X.Org Server hang on input.
- A performance regression fix for some 2D/X11 rendering operations that affected some graphics cards since the Linux 290 series.
- A correction so PowerMizer works properly on some GDDR5 graphics cards.
- Support for the GeForce GTX 650 and GeForce GTX 660.
- A bug fix for OpenGL applications not animating properly when a rotation or transformation was applied.
- A fix for NVIDIA-Settings to handle "Reset Hardware Defaults".
- FXAA anti-aliasing for Unified Back Buffers.
The NVIDIA 304.48 Linux graphics driver announcement can be found via this thread. The Solaris and FreeBSD NVIDIA graphics driver has also been updated.
