There's still one bug left before the release of X Server 1.4.1, but Daniel Stone has announced on the X.Org mailing list that X Server 1.5 will no longer contain any "input hotness". Specifically, XKB 2 and Xi 2 were planned but that has been postponed until at least X Server 1.6. This delay has occurred because these changes will require quite a bit of work with how input events are processed and related MPX changes. Expect new X.Org input hotness then towards the end of 2008.
