Default request for README version

Is there any chance you could put a document version in the README files? That way we'd know if there is anything new there. Alternatively, something like a "What's New" section. Thanks, the keepers of the Linux nvidia driver do a really great job!

You can try the "diff" tool. Available on all Linux systems.
First save the old README, then install the new driver and diff them.

Default Re: request for README version

well, if I'm gonna look at the installed text file, there's really no problem, as the text file has a version number listed at the top. In the current version it states this:
NVIDIA Corporation
Last Updated: 2006/03/29
Most Recent Driver Version: 1.0-8774
from which I'd assume there's no change to the doc.

But as you no doubt didn't notice in my email, I was referring to the rather beatutiful on-line doc now located at http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/L...DME/index.html
which, as far as I can tell has no version number in it. I spose I *could* do a wget for every version, then perform a `diff -r` but I thought it might be easier for someone to replicate the version number for me. Just ease-of-use nicety is all.
