NVIDIA released today a new production-ready version of its proprietary/open-source graphics driver for GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris systems adding numerous improvements, new features, and bug fixes.
Highlights of the NVIDIA 525.60.11 release include Dynamic Boost support on laptops powered by AMD processors, support for the EGL_MESA_platform_surfaceless extension, performance improvements for PRIME render-offloaded apps, as well as support for OTA (Over-the-Air) updates in the Proton and Wine NVIDIANGX build.
The OTA feature is disabled by default, so users will who update to NVIDIA 525.60.11 will have to manually enable it by setting the
PROTON_ENABLE_NGX_UPDATER environment variable to value “1”.
Another interesting change in the new NVIDIA graphics driver release is the fact that NVIDIA updated the open-source kernel modules to add support for Quadro Sync, Stereo, rotation in X11, and YUV 4:2:0 on Turing.
