NVIDIA yesterday released the 358.13 Linux graphics driver as the newest mainline driver. This week, however, they've also updated their legacy drivers for X.Org Server 1.18.

The NVIDIA 352.63 release adds support for X.Org Server 1.18. It also has a few other bug-fixes plus support for some new Quadro and GeForce mobile GPUs.

NVIDIA 304.131 is the new driver update for old, pre-Fermi graphics cards and it has a fix for a texture corruption bug and also lands X.Org Server 1.18 support.

X.Org Server 1.18 was officially released earlier this month. It's great to see NVIDIA continuing to maintain their legacy drivers well. Meanwhile, the AMD Catalyst driver doesn't have mainline support yet for the latest Linux 4.x kernel releases let alone X.Org Server 1.18.
