Arrow 295.33 (long-lived branch release) for Linux x86/x86_64 released

Release highlights since 295.20:
  • Added support for the following GPUs:
    • GeForce GTX 680
    • GeForce GT 630M
    • GeForce GT 620
  • Fixed a VDPAU bug where decoding some H.264 streams would cause hardware errors on lower-end products, resulting in corruption and poor performance.
  • Fixed a bug that caused DisplayPort audio to stop working after monitors are hotplugged on GeForce GT 520.
  • Improved compatibility with recent Linux kernels.
  • Fixed a behavior change that prevented ConnectedMonitor from being usable with DisplayPort connectors.
  • Marked the GVO Clone mode NV-CONTROL attributes:


    as deprecated. They will be removed in a future release. To display an X screen over GVO, it is recommended to use GVO with MetaModes, instead.
  • Fixed a bug that caused DisplayPort devices to not be listed in Xorg.*.log. For example, if only DisplayPort devices are attached, the log file would contain
    (--) NVIDIA(0): Connected display device(s) on NVIDIA GPU at PCI:2:0:0
    (--) NVIDIA(0): none
  • Added support for 3D Vision ready displays that have a NVIDIA 3D Vision infrared emitter built inside the panel itself.
  • Fixed a bug that caused OpenGL applications to crash with some libc versions, such as eglibc 2.15.
  • Fixed a bug that caused HDMI audio to stop working on AppleTV devices when an X server was started.
