Keith Packard released the X.Org Server release on Tuesday, another release candidate of the forthcoming xorg-server 1.13.

The xorg-server is mainly for bumping the ABI version. The API/ABI hasn't changed since the first release candidate, but the xfree86 ABI wasn't bumped when it should have been and NVIDIA's Aaron Plattner spotted it a few days ago.

Aside from the ABI bump, there's just a few more fixes mainly for Apple's XQuartz and a few other random fixes.

Details in this mailing list announcement.
