NVIDIA has announced the release of their 310.51 "certified" proprietary graphics driver for Linux, Solaris, and BSD operating systems.
With the recent release of the feature-rich NVIDIA 319.17 graphics driver
, the NVIDIA Unix engineers are now ending the 310.xx driver series.
For those that don't yet want to move to the 319 series, NVIDIA has issued one final 310.xx update before killing off the branch. The NVIDIA 310.51 driver fixes an RanDR RRGetCrtcInfo bug, a regression causing a potential X.Org Server crash during mode-setting, augmented the resolution drop-down from NVIDIA Settings, and adding /usr/lib/modprobe.d to the list of directories where the NVIDIA installer can generate a modprobe configuration file for disabling the Nouveau DRM.
Details of the final NVIDIA 310 Linux/BSD/Solaris driver update can be read on NVIDIA DevTalk
