Over the weekend there was a new Linux binary driver release from NVIDIA that was the 256.52 driver in a pre-release state. It didn't deliver on OpenCL 1.1, Fermi Linux overclocking support, or any other radical features, but it did bring a handful of bug-fixes. Today this driver has been released as stable after being branded the NVIDIA 256.53 driver.

The NVIDIA 256.53 Linux driver release doesn't really bring anything different from the 256.52 driver, so just read this article for details. The x86/x86_64 Linux driver download links are here. This is just an update for NVIDIA's main Linux driver and not their legacy drivers for older hardware.
