They always do prior to linux releases... with perhaps a very few exceptions.
What features are you looking foward to anyway, or do you just like our numbers to keep up?

Personally I do not need any features other than correction of the issues with the latest kernels (in particular the ability to run with 4KSTACKS since it is still in consideration... still being added / removed while they fiddle with it, especially Andrew Morton in the -mm patchset). I'm patient on that one since it is experimental and primarily for server boxes anyway.

Actually I'm kinda hoping they will release newer amd_64 drivers with 32bit
library compatability. That and of course GF6800 support not that there is any hurry. They wont hit stores for at least 4-6 weeks...

Issues with the 64 bit procs running 32bit code is a good point... that's an area that needs work, not only in this driver but all around.

I'm kinda hoping for TV-out/framebuffer/console problems being fixed in a next release

I know compatiblity/bugs comes before speed but I hope a good gain will come, atleast the speed of the 4620. AA and AF are excelient on that 5336 just more fps and stabilizing the fps would help greatly, oh and the nvidia panel would be a bonus which works proper with 5336.

GLSlang, OpenGL 1.5, Cg for AMD64, 32bit compat for AMD64, more stable drivers for AMD64 in general, true Linux 2.6.x compatibility - I think that's enough... ;-)

A 64-bit driver that doesn't flop over and die under SMP would be nice. If newer drivers are being released for Windows that's a good sign though, obviously they have some driver improvements that they've deemed suitable for production.

Corona688 fear not.
IMHO one of the big reasons Nvidia has any linux support is for their Quadro series cards and the big buck paying proffesional workstation users. Whom I am sure will start using amd_64 SMP.

I personally hope this release is made soon. I would love to have OpenGL 1.5 support on my card and hopefully a few performance improvements.
