Release highlights since 361.18:
- Added support for the following GPUs:
- GeForce 945A
- Tesla M4
- Added a legacy, non-GLVND libGL.so GLX client library to the NVIDIA Linux driver installer package, and the ability to select between a GLVND or non-GLVND GLX client library at installation time. This allows users to install the legacy non-GLVND GLX client library in order to work around compatibility issues which may arise due to GLX applications which depend upon behaviors of the NVIDIA GLX client driver which are not defined by the Linux OpenGL ABI version 1.0.
By default, nvidia-installer will install the legacy, non-GLVND GLX client libraries. The --glvnd-glx-client command line option can be used to override the default, and install the GLVND GLX client libraries instead. Please contact the vendors of any applications that are not compatible with GLVND to ensure that their applications be updated for compatibility with GLVND. The presence of multiple GLX client libraries in the package has implications for repackagers of the NVIDIA driver; see the libGL.so entry in the "Installed Components" chapter of the README and the thread <a target='_blank' rel='noopener noreferrer' href='"https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/915640/unix-graphics-announcements-and-news/multiple-glx-client-libraries-in-the-nvidia-linux-driver-installer-package/"'>Multiple GLX client libraries in the NVIDIA Linux driver installer package</a> for details.</li></ul>
