New NVidia Driver: 295.59

NVidia has released a new NVidia driver, 295.59. This driver adds support to a variety of NVidia new products, such as
  • NVS 5400M
  • NVS 310
  • GeForce GT 620M
  • GeForce GT 640M
  • GeForce GT 640M LE

  • GeForce GTX 675M
  • GeForce GTX 555
  • GeForce GTX 560 SE
  • GeForce GT 415
  • GeForce GTX 460 v2
Other changes are
  • Disabled the use of certain OpenGL optimizations with Autodesk Maya and Mudbox, due to conflicts between these applications and the optimizations. Some performance loss in Autodesk Maya and Mudbox is possible, as a result.
  • Fixed a behavior issue where redundant DPMS state transitions were leading to unexpected screen blanking on DisplayPort displays.
They also released an update for L4T, their "Linux For Tegra" platform, for those using NVIDIA's ARM hardware. Linux For Tegra 15 is using the Linux 3.1.10 kernel, supports OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0, EGL 1.4, RandR 1.3, and X.Org Server ABIs 5/6/7/8/10/11/12.
