- Updated the confirmation dialog box that is displayed when quitting the nvidia-settings control panel to report when there are pending configuration changes which will be lost if they are not applied or saved before quitting.
- Enabled parallel GLSL shader linking by default; i.e., allow GL_ARB_parallel_shader_compile to work without first calling glMaxShaderCompilerThreadsARB().
- Added support for HDMI 2.1 variable refresh rate (VRR) G-SYNC Compatible monitors on supported GPUs.For more details, see "Configuring Multiple Display Devices on One X Screen" in the README.
- Added support for the GLX_NV_multigpu_context and GL_NV_gpu_multicast extensions.For more details, see the "Configuring SLI and Multi-GPU FrameRendering" chapter of the README, and the extension specifications:
- Enabled HardDPMS by default. See the README entry on the X configuration option "HardDPMS" for more information.
- Added VP9 decode support to the NVIDIA VDPAU driver. See the VDPAU Support appendix in the README for supported VP9 decoder profiles.
- Changed GPU clock management strategy to more quickly ramp down clocks after a drop in GPU utilization.
- Added X configuration option, "SidebandSocketPath", which controls the directory in which the X driver will create a pathname UNIX domain socket used to communicate with the NVIDIA OpenGL, Vulkan and VDPAU driver components.
- Fall back to system memory when video memory is full for some driver-internal allocations. This can help fix Xid 13 and Xid 31 cases in Vulkan applications when video memory is full.
- Fixed a bug that could cause a blank screen on some DisplayPort monitors when logging in to GNOME, if the nvidia-drm kernel module parameter modeset=1 is specified.
