While there have been NVIDIA 190.xx Linux driver releases on the Internet going back to June, a stable driver release in this series that supports OpenCL, brings new VDPAU features, provides OpenGL 3.2, and supports new hardware has yet to take place. In fact, the last stable update was NVIDIA 185.18.36 back in August. The 190.xx driver series though is slowly getting ready to be officially supported by this Santa Clara company.

Yesterday evening NVIDIA pushed out the 190.42 Linux driver update (and also updates to their OpenSolaris and FreeBSD drivers too), which is to serve as a release candidate. The NVIDIA 190.42 driver for Linux officially fixes five different bugs impacting nvidia-settings, Xinerama, VDPAU, power management, and TV-Out. The NVIDIA 190.42 announcement with x86/x86_64 download links can be found at NvNews.net.
