Back on November 14, NVIDIA had unveiled their 180.06 Linux driver
as a major update that brought forth VDPAU
, an advanced video acceleration API, and a horde of other features. Four days after that, NVIDIA then pushed out the 180.08 Linux driver
that delivered OpenGL 3.0
support. Now this afternoon, NVIDIA has pushed out another driver. The 180.11 Beta brings in a couple of fixes and improvements.
This release fixes font corruption for GeForce 6 and 7 GPUs when the GlyphCache option is enabled, a memory leak also related to GlyphCache, support for GVO full-range color, improved monitor sync range parsing, and support for the GeForce 9400M GPU. Additionally, when it comes to the Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix, there is improved error detection and reporting. There is also improved VDPAU support for some video bit-streams.
The 180.11 driver can be downloaded for Linux x86
and Linux x86_64
