For legacy version, there not much updates, except for compatibility updates with the latest Xorg driver and kernel version. For current version, there's some several updates, including the problem causing the fan on some GPUs to always run at full speed, bug that caused the X driver to crash if the X.Org GLX extension module was loaded intead of NVIDIA’s, and bug in the Linux/i2c algorithm driver implementation that prevented core transfer types from succeeding. There's also an improvements in X driver’s awareness of the current notebook docking status.
