The Short-Lived branch of the Nvidia video driver usually gets the latest improvements and fixes, but it is not recommended to stable users because it changes too often and new releases are not thoroughly tested. Nvidia 364.19 is now the latest short-lived graphics driver, and it looks like it brings many interesting changes.
First, it adds support for the Nvidia Quadro M6000 24GB and Quadro M5500 graphics cards. Then, we can see a new kernel module, namely nvidia-drm.ko, which has been engineered to register itself as a DRM driver with both DRM KMS and PRIME support, as well as initial Direct Rendering Manager Kernel Modesetting (DRM KMS) support.
The Nvidia 364.19 short-lived graphics driver also adds a new RandR property called CscMatrix, which can be used to specify a 3×4 color-space conversion matrix. As usual, numerous issues have been resolved, which you can see if you click the changelog attached at the end of the article.
