NVIDIA has today released ther 331.89 Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD graphics drivers within their long-lived 331.xx graphics driver branch.

The NVIDIA 331.89 graphics driver for Linux (and Solaris/FreeBSD) includes support for the GeForce GT 730 graphics card, support for X.Org Server 1.16, and a variety of bug-fixes. The bug-fixes are great and the GeForce GT 730 hardware enablement is also great while nearly all NVIDIA 331 graphics driver users will be able to appreciate the X.Org Server 1.16 support considering the xorg-server update isn't even scheduled to be released until next month, will make it into the H2'2014 Linux distribution updates, and chances are the AMD Catalyst driver won't even support the new server for some months based upon their historical turnaround times.

More details on this newest NVIDIA 331 long-lived driver update can be found at NVIDIA DevTalk.
