Nvidia Graphics Driver Update for OS X 10.10.4
(Update: On July 28th they released a later driver version. See video topics page)
Nvidia download page for Graphics driver 346.01.03f01 for OS X 10.10.4 build 14E46. Here's a clip from the main D/L page tab (other than version info typical boilerplate).
"New in Release 346.01.03f01
  • Graphics driver updated for Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.4 (14E46)
  • Contains performance improvements and bug fixes for a wide range of applications.
  • Includes NVIDIA Driver Manager preference pane."
  • See linked page/tabs for more info. As of post time (9AM 7/2), the page refers to CUDA 7.0.52 in the text but the link routes to CUDA 7.0.36 from April 9th. (See below for link CUDA 7.0.52 release.)

    I've not seen updates at Nvidia's site for OS X 10.9.5 and 10.8.5 builds with security update 2015-005 but will post them on the video topics page when I do. (I'm not using an nvidia card currently to check using the nvidia prefs panel.)

    Nvidia CUDA 7.0.52 Update for OS X (Yosemite and Mavericks)
    Nvidia posted a download page for CUDA 7.0.52 for OS X 10.10.x and 10.9.x. As before, it has this note on older GPU support:
    "This driver does not support older generation GPUs with SM1.x."

    Earlier versions with that note also referred to CUDA 6.5.45 for SM1.x support but that older CUDA version may not support the latest graphics drivers.

    OS X Server v4.1.3 (for OS X 10.10.4)
    Apple posted OS X Server v4.1.3 (lists 10.10.4 or later required) with these changes:
    • Updated for OS X Yosemite 10.10.4.
    • Fixed an issue where Firewall rules were incorrectly being applied after reboot.
    • Caching Server configuration option to output DNS TXT records in Windows format.
    • User and Group accounts can now be exported to a file.
    • Improved reliability of Time Machine backups and restores.
    • Updated Profile Manager enrollment profile handling.
    • Enhancements for Profile Manager device searching.
    • Messages service improvements for group access.
    • Improved Web service remote administration.
    • Wiki service improvements on iPad.
    • Fixed an issue that could cause Server to stall when updating Profile Manager, Calendar, and Wiki services.
    • Profile Manager support for new features, Mobile Device Management commands, and payloads introduced in iOS 8.3.
