How often are nvidia-current and nvidia-current-updates packages updated, and when do they usually become available?

This is entirely depend on the nvidia developers. – Ravi Jun 14 '12 at 15:10

According to this it looks like about once a month, but as Ravi has said, it is really up to the nvidia developers. They do not follow a strict release schedule. I believe when using Jockey (the Additional Drivers dialog), they are updated as they come out.
