Default 295.20 (long-lived branch release) for Linux x86/x86_64 released

Release highlights since 295.17:
  • Fixed a bug that caused black areas to appear on the back faces of some models in Maya.
  • Fixed a bug that resulted in the printing of spurious loader error messages.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause X to crash after hotplugging displays.
  • Fixed a bug which caused face selections to be misrendered in Maya when using the paint selection tool.
  • Improved performance for interactive tools in Mudbox.
  • Added a --no-opengl-files option to nvidia-installer to allow installation of the driver without OpenGL files that might conflict with already installed OpenGL implementations.
  • Split the DFP configuration page in nvidia-settings into multiple tabs, allowing the controls to be displayed on smaller screens.
  • Added support for the following GPU:
    • NVS 5200M
  • Added support for deleting SDI audio ancillary data packets when a video frame is dropped on a Quadro SDI Output device. See the NV_CTRL_GVO_AUDIO_BLANKING attribute in NVCtrl.h for details. This option can be set via the GvoAudioBlanking attribute in nvidia-settings.
