  1. Actually, a few no-public versions of PhysX plug-ins were released before 3.0.2.
    Their release notes are also included.

  2. Just a note that IE9+ tends to not recognise the file and mark it as unsafe – Windows 8+ will even block trying to run it! This can be frightening for the user; just make sure you download from the NVidia site (after signing up for a free Dev license) – then chose More Info > Run Any Way :)
