    Default X.Org Server 1.15 Has Been Delayed

    Phoronix: X.Org Server 1.15 Has Been Delayed

    While X.Org Server 1.15 was planned for release in September with the usual release cadence for X.Org updates, this isn't going to happen. X.Org Server 1.15 is going to be delayed until there's more interesting code merged...

    hell yeah xephyr rewrite sounds great to me, lets hope it has GPU acceleration this time around. Xephyr is such an easy way to do multi-seat, but without being accelerated, it's almost unusuable. If they can manage to get a 2nd GPU to operate in the xephyr session that'd be amazing.

    This seems silly. The whole point of having a predictable release cadence is for people to be able to plan ahead and count on your next release. Interesting or not, it's much better to stick to the cycle. Cheers!

    So they should release nothing and bump the minor version number? If someone desperately wants Xserver "1.15.0" then they should download 1.14.3 (which was released < 2 weeks ago) and rename it to 1.15.0, because that's what it amounts to. It's just a matter of semantics.
