    Phoronix: X.Org Server 1.16 Officially Released With Terrific Features

    After a last minute delay earlier this month, Keith Packard of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center has officially announced the X.Org Server 1.16 release. XWayland and other changes make xorg-server 1.16 a super exciting release!

    One omission here was a last-minute bug fix for glamor Render
    acceleration that manifests as disappearing icons in systray. That's
    been posted to the mailing list for review and to see if it causes
    regressions like the last proposed fix for this bug did.

    Optional Systemd Support - This allows for running the X.Org Server without root privileges by systemd paired with other changes.

    To be fair, although I agree with you that they normally troll, one of the biggest complaints is that systemd seems to never be optional these days. So if it's optional, I don't know if it will cause the usual ruckus...

    I don't think so , this is for fixing a bug with kwin composite xrender && the gtk systrays to show icons... which is maybe third attempt to fix both those cases alltogether . if someone report kwin is fine with that one patch, than i guess it will be applied .

    if you understand what that what you quoted means, then fine
    if you do not understand then you are the one just trolling
    either way xorg 1.16 comes with a many improvements and the only thing you can think about are trolls ?
