    Uhm whole list is on their linux forums:
    Release highlights since 396.24:
    • Added support for the following GPU:
      • TITAN V JHH Special Edition
    • Improved recovery of Vulkan direct-to-display applications after an application hang or crash.
    • Fixed a bug that could cause multi-threaded EGL applications to crash when exiting.
    • Improved compatibility with recent Linux kernels.
    • Fixed an intermittent hang of Vulkan applications running fullscreen when flipping is allowed.
    • Removed informational messages that were printed by nvidia-modeset.ko whenever a GPU device was allocated or freed.
    • Fixed a bug that could cause kernel panics when using Quadro SDI Capture hardware.
    • Fixed a bug that caused kwin OpenGL compositing to crash when launching certain OpenGL applications.
    • Fixed an intermittent crash when launching Vulkan applications.
    • Fixed an intermittent crash when launching applications through Wine.
    • Fixed a bug that caused the driver, in some low bandwidth DisplayPort configurations, to not implicitly enable display dithering. This resulted in visible banding.
    • Fixed intermittent hangs of fullscreen Vulkan applications when focused away (e.g., by using the alt-tab key combination) on non-composited desktops.
    • Increased the version numbers of the GLVND libGL, libGLESv1_CM, libGLESv2, and libEGL libraries, to prevent concurrently installed non-GLVND libraries from taking precedence in the dynamic linker cache.
    • Updated the OpenGL driver to allow the use of integer format (SINT/UINT) color attachments with depth attachments in Frame Buffer Objects.

      does Xorg 1.20 + bumblebee works on this driver?

        Looks like a decent release, however I wish they would merge the fixes in the beta vulkan driver when moving to a higher version number as it is very confusing for people who might think this driver is newer/better then 396.24.10...

          I agree... It's definitely not helpful in the slightest...

          Especially for DXVK, not everyone is running Gentoo / Arch and can just easily install a developer edition of the nvidia drivers...
