Новые драйвера для видеокарт от NVIDIA (180.29)

9 февраля 2009 года вышли новые стабильные драйвера для видеокарт семейтва NVIDIA. Напомню, что эта версия поддержывает карты на чипсетах GeForce 6xxx и выше. Чтобы узнать, какие драйвера подходят вам, посмотрите приложение на сайте NVIDIA.
В этой версии:

  • Добавлена поддержка таких GPUs:
    • GeForce GTX 295
    • GeForce GTX 285
    • GeForce 9300 GE
    • Quadro NVS 420
  • Добавлена поддержка OpenGL 3.0 для карт GeForce 8-ой серии и выше.
  • Fixed a bug that caused VDPAU to display a green screen when using the overlay-based presentation queue with interlaced modes.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented VDPAU from working correctly after X server restarts on some GPUs.
  • Improved VDPAU’s handling of mode switches; eliminated a crash in its mode switch recovery code and a hang in the blit-based presentation queue.
  • Fixed a bug that caused VDPAU to crash when using DisplayPort devices.
  • Fixed a potential hang in VDPAU when using the blit-based presentation queue on systems with multiple GPUs not in SLI mode.
  • Implemented missing error checking of layer data in VDPAU’s VdpVideoMixerRender function.
  • Improved VDPAU’s handling of setups with multiple GPUs, if a subset of the GPUs cannot be supported due to resource limitations.
  • Improved GPU video memory management coordination between the NVIDIA X driver and VDPAU.
  • Fix potential hang in VDPAU when the overlay is already in use.
  • Improved workstation OpenGL performance.
  • Fixed an X driver acceleration bug that resulted in Xid errors on GeForce 6 and 7 series GPUs.
  • Updated the X driver to consider GPUs it does not recognize supported, allowing it to drive some GPUs it previously ignored.
  • Added the ability to run distribution provided pre- and post- installation hooks to ‘nvidia-installer’; please see the ‘nvidia-installer’ manual page for details.
  • Updated the X driver’s metamode parser to allow mode names with periods (i.e. ‘.’s).
  • Fixed a problem in VDPAU that prevented the overlay-based presentation queue from being used on displays connected by component video.
  • Fixed various problems in VDPAU that caused visual corruption when decoding certain MPEG-2 video streams.
  • Fixed a crash in VDPAU caused by certain invalid MPEG-2 streams, in 64-bit drivers for some GPUs.
  • Fixed an X driver performance problem on integrated GPUs.
  • Fixed a stability problem with OpenGL applications using FSAA.
  • Fixed an initialization problem that caused some AGP GPUs to be used in PCI compatibility mode.
  • Fixed a bug that could result in stability problems after changing clock settings via the Coolbits interface.
  • Fixed a problem with hotkey switching on some recent mobile GPUs.
  • Worked around a power management regression in and improved compatibility with recent Linux 2.6 kernels.
