While NVIDIA is hard at work on the 185.xx display driver series for Linux, FreeBSD, and OpenSolaris systems, as can be seen by their 185.18.14 driver release just days ago. However, for those sticking with the official NVIDIA driver updates, a new release in the 180.xx series is now available. The NVIDIA 180.60 Linux driver brings a few noteworthy changes.

The NVIDIA 180.60 display driver has stability fixes for select NVIDIA GPUs on multi-core systems, a VGA console restoration fix for select laptops, a NvAGP kernel crash fix for x86_64 kernels built with CONFIG_GART_IOMMU, a bug that caused performance levels to be disabled on select GeForce 9 notebooks, and lastly there is a OpenGL driver fix for Bibble 5.

The NVIDIA 180.60 driver release isn't as exciting as what's to be found in the 185.xx release series, but it's out there for those interested in x86 and x86_64 flavors.
