NVIDIA's Unix graphics driver team has experienced a busy day with releasing the big 378 Linux driver feature update and two legacy driver releases while now they also have a stable update in their long-lived 375 driver series branch.

For those not wanting to switch to the NVIDIA 378.13 driver even though it's now considered stable, the 375.39 driver was released today in what NVIDIA is maintaining as the NVIDIA 375 long-lived driver series.

The NVIDIA 375.39 driver brings support for more Quadro Pascal GPUs as was also introduced in the 378 series plus it has some bug fixes. The bug fixes include a system hang when resuming from suspend with certain GPUs, a regression that caused corruption when hot-plugging displays, a regression that prevented systems with multiple DisplayPort monitors from resuming after suspend, and a bug in the NVIDIA driver causing hangs on 32-bit x86 systems with older kernels.

The Quadro Pascal cards seeing official driver support with the NVIDIA 375.39 Linux driver include Quadro GP100, Quadro P4000, Quadro P2000, Quadro P1000, Quadro P600, Quadro P400, Quadro M1200, Quadro M2200. Unfortunately, NVIDIA still doesn't send us out any Quadro parts for Linux benchmarking so unfortunately we have no tests to share of these new workstation cards.

The NVIDIA 375.39 Linux driver (and it's also available for FreeBSD) can be downloaded from NVIDIA.com.
