352.30 — Changelog: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/860119/

✔ Added support for the following GPU:
   ✓ Tesla K80
   ✓ GeForce 910M

✔ Fixed a bug that caused poor video post-processing performance in VDPAU when operating on a large number of video streams simultaneously.
✔ Updated nvidia-installer to use modprobe(8) when leaving the NVIDIA kernel module loaded after installation, instead of insmod(8) or libkmod. This allows the kernel module to honor any configuration directives that apply to it in /etc/modprobe.d when it is loaded.
✔ Fixed a bug that allowed console messages from the Linux kernel to be drawn over the user interface of nvidia-installer.

nvidia-beta and nvidia-beta-all both require this package. That sounds like you're somehow trying to remove it.

My system wouldn't start X today, giving a nvidia error. I decided to reinstall the nvidia - beta package, but it fails to install nvidia-utils-beta. When nvidia-utils-beta is installed, pacman says "Failed to prepare transaction could not satisfy dependences: nivida-betea requires nvidia-utils-beta" it looks like when you try to install it, it instead tries to install nvidia-beta?

We already have that on the driver component itself.
