- Added support for G-SYNC monitors when used together with non-G-SYNC monitors.When G-SYNC is enabled, non-G-SYNC monitors will display with tearing.
- Fixed a bug that caused nvidia-settings to crash when assigning an attribute whose value is a display ID on a system with multiple X screens.
- Updated the reporting of in-use video memory in the nvidia-settings control panel to use the same accounting methods used in other tools such as nvidia-smi. nvidia-settings was not taking some allocations into account, e.g. framebuffer memory for the efifb console on UEFI systems, causing discrepancies in the values reported by different tools.
- Added support for lossless H.264/AVC video streams to VDPAU.
- Added support for VDPAU Feature Set F to the NVIDIA VDPAU driver. GPUs with VDPAU Feature Set F are capable of hardware-accelerated decoding of H.265/HEVC video streams.
- Fixed a bug that prevented GPU fan speed changes from getting reflected in the text box on Thermal settings page.
- Added nvidia-settings commandline support to query the current and targeted GPU fan speed.
- Added a checkbox to nvidia-settings to enable a visual indicator that shows when G-SYNC is being used.This is helpful for displays that don't indicate themselves whether they are operating in G-SYNC mode or normal mode.
This setting can also be enabled by running the command line
nvidia-settings -a ShowGSYNCVisualIndicator=1
- Added support for YUV 4:2:0 compression to enable HDMI 2.0 4K@60Hz modes when either the display or GPU is incapable of driving these modes in RGB 4:4:4.See NoEdidHDMI2Check in the README for details.
- Fixed a bug that could cause multi-threaded applications to crash when multiple threads used the EGL driver at the same time.
- Fixed a bug that caused Sync to VBlank to not work correctly with XVideo applications in certain configurations.
- Fixed a bug that prevented the X driver from correctly interpreting some X configuration options when a display device name was given with a GPU UUID qualifier.
- Added the NVIDIA Management Library (libnvidia-ml.so), and its associated utilities, nvidia-smi and nvidia-debugdump, to the driver packages for FreeBSD and Solaris.
