    Phoronix: X Server 1.7.2 Released

    Just as planned, X Server 1.7.2 was released this morning to encompass all of the bug-fixes that have went into the X Server 1.7 branch over the past five weeks. The X Server 1.7.2 release message can be read on xorg-announce...

    Why not bring Xserver 1.7 to xorg-edgers/karmic?

      because it breaks some drivers (e.g. fglrx) ?

      it would be even more work to track the problems and bugs with multiple x-servers ?

      if ATI/AMD updated their drivers soon (let's say at the end of december or beginning of january) with adding support for xserver 1.7 maybe it would be possible ...

      I however highly doubt that the distributions would update their x-servers in the middle of a release cycle

        you must be lucky when you get a fglrx 10-4 prelease with that xserver support i guess. ati follows ubuntu releases not xserver releases.

          I am talking about xorg-edgers, not Ubuntu's official karmic repository.

            sorry for confusing that

            I'm using ubuntu only pretty seldom and on my laptop (right now) and don't know about all those fancy repositories - I thought it was part of (official) ubuntu

            more power to the xorg-edgers guys

            I hope to be able to partly switch to ubuntu 10.04 and use the opensource driver instead of fglrx,

            perhaps with the edgers repo it could be even earlier ? - who knows

            but first they need to tweak the cpu and i/o scheduler a little (keyword: BFS or improved CFS and BFQ)
