Fixed a bug which caused Dynamic Boost to not engage on certain Ampere GPU based notebooks.
Added support for Dynamic Boost on notebooks with AMD CPUs.
Fixed a bug that resulted in stutter when moving windows in GNOME.
Added support for the EGL_MESA_platform_surfaceless extension.
Updated the nvidia-settings control panel to prevent the creation of display layouts that exceed hardware size limitations when using the SLI Mosaic configuration page, and to display a warning if such a layout is created manually in the Display Configuration page.
Removed the hard dependency on GTK 2 when building nvidia-settings from source. nvidia-settings may now be built with support for GTK 2 only, GTK 3 only, or both GTK 2 and GTK 3.
Updated the open kernel modules to support Quadro Sync, Stereo, rotation in X11, and YUV 4:2:0 on Turing.
Updated an error message that nvidia-installer displays when kernel header files cannot be found to print full paths for the missing files.
Updated nvidia-installer to use “command -v” in place of depending on “which” to determine the availability and location of certain tools.
Fixed a bug that caused nvidia-settings to find incorrect fan speed ranges on some GPUs. Lower-level layers of the driver protected the hardware from programming incorrect fan speeds, so the symptom was only incorrect reporting. Now, reporting in nvidia-settings matches what actually gets programmed in hardware.
Turing and later: fixed possible excessive GPU power draw on an idle X11 or Wayland desktop when driving high resolutions or refresh rates.
Fixed an issue where HDMI audio output was not working in some cases, especially with high display refresh rates (120Hz, 100Hz, etc.) using Fixed Rate Link (FRL) transmission mode.
