Default New version?

Hello!
Does everyone know, when can I expect new nvidia driver version. I am asking because, in new version there will be support for new xorg-server ABI. Now I have to use nv driver and I cannot play 3d games.

why don't you downgrade your xserver to 7.0 for now? AFAIK 7.1 is still in rc and as such not yet released. Which distribution are you using?

I am using gentoo. I don't want to downgrade it, because I have a lot of unmasked packages which depends on it.

I'm using gentoo as well. Maybe you should remove xorg packages from /etc/portage/package.unmask as 7.0 is not hard masked anymore. It'll save you from many troubles in the future. Just leave the xorg packages in /etc/portage/package.keywords and you'll be fine...
btw: i'd like a new release as well
