Current long-lived is 390.25, current official is 390.42?

What is this? A new version numbering scheme?

Sorry, I forgot to update the long-lived branch entry when I updated it for 390.42 today.

For some reason, the forum wasn’t letting me make posts or replies earlier.

Aaron, what 390.25 problems does it fix?

According to the changelog…

Did you even look at nvidia_Changelog in the .run file?

======== Release 390 Entries ========

    * Fixed a regression, introduced in 390.12, that caused occasional
      flicker when using the X driver's composition pipeline, for
      example when using screen transformations like rotation, or the
      "ForceCompositionPipeline" or "ForceFullCompositionPipeline"
      options."

    * Fixed a regression introduced in 390.12 that prevented displays from
      working normally when running multiple X screens with emulated overlays.

    * Added support for the following GPUs:
        * GeForce GTX 1060 5GB
        * Quadro P620

    * Fixed a regression introduced in 390.12 that caused occasional hangs and
      hard lockup messages in the system log when screen transformations are in
      use.

Nope, I was quoting the driver release page - http://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/131853/en-us - which seems rather sparse.

For people installing using distribution packages, there is no indication of the existence of nvidia_Changelog file in the .run file.
All we have is https://www.nvidia.com/Download/driverResults.aspx/131853/en-us which often doesn’t list everything that changed between releases.

That would depend on how well it was packaged for the distribution.
