This is good news because I was experiencing some of these errors and they can get quite annoying. I wonder how long until the driver sizes will be 80 megs lmao...

glad that the " Brief corruption (flickering, boxes) on screen at Windows Vista login, CTR-ALT-DEL (Task Manager), or other function that requires Vista User Account Control" and "Corruption on DVI monitor while going to hibernation from standby" are being addressed.. but sadly not so many games fixes..
Excellent news nevertheless!

Any driver that improves SLi performance is something to get excited about! Since I have not filed a bug report, I was not privy to this email, so I appreciate the advance notice. Thank you.

I don't think we gonna see a leak of this driver, cause they said: release in a couple of days :)

Addmitadly when they said March for the SLI drivers, I suspected the end of March rather than the start of March, if this statement of a couple of days is anything close to accurate, maybe we'll see them at the start of March?

ok still not a single mention of any of the game issues

There were 2 games listed, Madden 07 and COD2. I'm sure many more with SLI issues will be fixed, but as far as corruption of display, they probably didn't have time to fix that yet trying to get SLI support.

As they say in the email, you have to check the release notes (in PDF format) for a list of ALL the fixes.
