Updated the nvidia-settings control panel to be more consistent about displaying layout controls which are only applicable for some displays or GPUs connected to the system.
Improved X11 DrawText() performance when rendering stippled text.
Fixed a bug that could prevent some hardware configurations with large numbers of displays connected to the same GPU from working correctly.
Fixed a bug that could cause multi-threaded GLX applications to hang while attempting to handle an XError.
Fixed a potential crash in the Vulkan driver when clearing images with multiple layers.
Fixed a bug with the host-visible device-local memory heap, where if an allocation failed due to space constraints, it could cause the application to crash on future Vulkan function calls.
Fixed corruption in the Vulkan driver that sometimes occurred with shadow rendering with image arrays.
Added support for the VK_KHR_synchronization2 extension.
Added support for the VK_KHR_workgroup_memory_explicit_layout extension.
Added support for the VK_KHR_zero_initialize_workgroup_memory extension.
Added support for linear images for use with host-visible video memory in Vulkan.
Fixed an issue with OpenGL where imported Vulkan buffers would fail with GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY when marked as resident.
Added support for Vulkan 1.2* on FreeBSD.
Product is based on a published Khronos Specification and is expected to pass the Khronos Conformance Process. Current conformance status can be found at: https://www.khronos.org/conformance/
Installation instructions: Once you have downloaded the driver, change to the directory containing the driver package and install the driver by running, as root, tar xzf NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86_64-465.24.02.tar.gz && cd NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86_64-465.24.02 && make install
Then, edit your X configuration file so that the NVIDIA X driver will be used; this can normally be done by running nvidia-xconfig
Note that the list of supported GPU products is provided to indicate which GPUs are supported by a particular driver version. Some designs incorporating supported GPUs may not be compatible with the NVIDIA Linux driver: in particular, notebook and all-in-one desktop designs with switchable (hybrid) or Optimus graphics will not work if means to disable the integrated graphics in hardware are not available.
Hardware designs will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, so please consult with a system's manufacturer to determine whether that particular system is compatible.
