X.Org 7.3 was released two months ago, and scheduled to be released today was X Server 1.4.1. This release is supposed to address some of the issues that had come up with X Server 1.4.0; however, it looks like this release will be delayed once again. The X Server 1.4 Wiki page still shows the release date as November 11, but there are a number of open bugs remaining. The xorg-server-1.4.1 blocker bug has five dependent bugs open with only two being resolved. These five remaining bugs are for memmove in SetKeySymsMap, EXA corruption, EXA negative tile coordinates, a KDE Konqueror X11 issue, and input events being duplicated across different windows. Nothing has been brought up on the X.Org mailing list yet, but it doesn't look like X Server 1.4.1 will be released today.
