Where is 185.19?
 
I was going to try the latest Beta driver. I see people talking about 185.19.

But the latest listed here:
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=122606
is 185.18.04?

Where's 185.19? Is that a super-secret Alpha version? :-)

With the last release, Nvidia did something funky and "upgraded" the beta driver to one with a lower version number. 185.18.04 is actually newer than 185.19, and it has all the fixes that 185.19 did.

Global standard schema for version numbering: XX.YY.ZZ
nVidia standard schema for version numbering: XX.YY.YY

185.1804 > 185.19

That's all I can guess.

Please see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...10&postcount=1 for a description of the version format. The first BETA build had a higher secondary number than the current and future 185.xx builds for (rather boring) release management reasons.

Ok, thanks for the explanation. I'll try 185.18.04, then.
