NVIDIA continue expanding their Linux driver support, with a fresh Vulkan Beta Driver going live today.
In terms of overall changes, it's quite a small one as NVIDIA continue firming up further Vulkan API support with two new extensions now available. Both of which landed with the Vulkan 1.2.148 specification update, which was released on July 19, here they are:
Additionally, a Linux-specific fix made it in which was "Fixed flipping behavior of X11 swapchains that have more than 2 images". You can see the NVIDIA Vulkan Beta Driver any time here.
Reminder: you know it's a special Beta driver thanks to the additional two numbers on the end of the version string, with the newest stable version of the NVIDIA driver for Linux at 450.57 which released on July 9. This special Vulkan beta driver is where all the shiny new stuff goes in before making its way into the stable release for everyone. Really, it's mostly aimed at developers and serious enthusiasts. Unless you need what's in them, it's generally best to use the stable drivers.
