New Drivers came out Friday.

Release highlights:
  • Added code to reject screen modes based on available DisplayPort link bandwidth. Fixes display corruption caused by allowing high bandwidth modes on display devices that can't handle them, such as certain DisplayPort-to-VGA adapters that only support 2 DisplayPort lanes.
  • Fixed an initialization problem on some mobile GPUs.
  • Worked around X.Org X server Bugzilla bug #22804. This bug allows X clients to send invalid XGetImage requests to the hardware, leading to screen corruption or hangs. This was most commonly triggered by running JDownloader in KDE 4.
  • Fixed a crash in nvidia-settings displaying GPU information when in Xinerama.
