A thread has been opened up on the Phoronix Forums for speculating over the release date and possible features in NVIDIA's next Linux display drivers (1.0-9XXX series). It looks as if it will indeed be an August or September launch, and will contain X.Org v7.1 support, but we are still working on nailing down other likely additions. Feel free to share your thoughts or ideas.
