X.Org Server 1.16 Merge Window Officially Opens
Keith Packard of Intel has bumped the xorg-server version to 188.8.131.520 in signifying that the merge window for the X.Org Server 1.16 release cycle is officially open for development.
X.Org Server 1.15 was released at the end of December and now Keith, serving as the xorg-server release manager, is planning for its official release in July. Per the release schedule, the merge window is open until the start of April followed by bug-fixing until June and pushing out the release in July. A couple of hours ago the X.Org Server mainline Git was bumped to 184.108.40.2060.
Already as X.Org Server 1.16 material we have seen the proposals to merge GLAMOR into the server, possible mainlining of XWayland support, and the elimination of compiler warnings. Hopefully we'll also see fixes for some of the hundreds of X.Org security problems.
Stay tuned for more X.Org Server 1.16 articles as its development advances over the weeks and months ahead.
