  • Restored the release splash screen in the NVIDIA X driver (the beta splash screen was accidentally reenabled between 275.09.07 and 275.19).
  • Fixed a bug that caused nvidia-settings to crash when configuring multiple X screens after all monitors were unplugged from one of the X screens.

  • Added X configuration options “3DVisionProHwButtonPairing”, “3DVisionProHwSinglePairingTimeout”, “3DVisionProHwMultiPairingTimeout”, and “3DVisionProHwDoubleClickThreshold” to configure hardware button based pairing in NVIDIA 3D Vision Pro. See “Appendix B. X Config Options” in the README for more information.
