NVIDIA 364.15 Fixes EGL Problems With Wayland, PRIME Fixes

Building off last month's NVIDIA 364.12 beta that brought Wayland and Mir support along with other major improvements to the NVIDIA proprietary Linux driver, out today is the NVIDIA 364.15 beta driver with some fixes added on top the 364 series.

The NVIDIA 364.15 driver release today adds Quadro M6000 24GB hardware support, fixes EGL interaction issues with window resizing on Wayland, fixes a bug with some DRM PRIME configurations, fixes a kernel crash with VDPAU and DRM KMS, updates the GLVND library, and limits the default concurrency level of nvidia-settings to 32.

So it's really not a new feature release today, but mostly about bug-fixing. It's great to see the EGL Wayland and PRIME fixes in particular. However, the NVIDIA driver isn't yet working with the mainline Wayland Weston compositor -- see that article for more details.

You can download the NVIDIA proprietary Linux driver update from NVIDIA.com.
