NVIDIA has released new 384.90 display drivers for Linux

NVIDIA 384.90 Linux Display Drivers released

Release Highlights:

Added support for the following GPU:
Quadro P5200
Fixed a regression that caused display flickering at lower PowerMizer performance levels on some GPUs.
Fixed a regression that prevented console restoration after a VT switch on some GPUs.
Fixed a bug that could cause a system hang when resuming from suspend with some GPUs.
Fixed a bug that caused slow or stuttering frame rates in applications that use GLX_EXT_swap_control_tear while G-SYNC is active.
Fixed a bug in the NVIDIA VDPAU driver that caused VdpVideoSurfaceGetBitsYCbCr() of H.265/HEVC content to have interlaced artifacts.
Fixed a bug that caused the X driver to not correctly report the "BlendOrder" MetaMode token when querying the MetaMode through, e.g., `nvidia-settings --query CurrentMetaMode`.
Fixed a bug that prevented nvidia-installer from displaying a targeted error message when optional kernel modules fail to load.
Updated nvidia-installer to label kernel modules with SELinux file type 'modules_object_t'. Some system SELinux policies only permit loading of kernel modules with this SELinux file type.
Removed support for checking for and downloading updated driver packages and precompiled kernel interfaces from nvidia-installer. This functionality was limited to unencrypted ftp and http, and was implemented using code that is no longer actively maintained.
