195.36.03 (beta) for Linux x86/x86_64 released

Release highlights:

  • Fixed a regression that made the “TVStandard” X configuration option cause system hangs with products from the GeForce 6 and 7 series.
  • Worked around a bug in some AUO laptop flat panels where the native mode in the EDID is invalid, leading to a 640×480 desktop repeated six times across the screen.
  • Increased the maximum number of slices supported by VDPAU for MPEG-2 streams, in order to cope with the region 1 DVD “A Christmas Story”.
  • Added unofficial preliminary support for xorg-server video driver ABI version 7, including xorg-server-1.7.99.2.
  • Fix the soname of libvdpau_nvidia.so.1 and libvdpau_trace.so.1 to match their filenames.
