X Server Oops, Another Release Today
The much-delayed X Server 1.5 RC4 (v22.214.171.1244) release made it out today, but it's already being replaced by a newer version. No, there wasn't a big development marathon today or anything spectacular, but X Server 126.96.36.1994 got pushed out with a show-stopping bug. The XInput ABI (for the non-programmers, the Application Binary Interface) number went with version 3.1, when it was supposed to be 2.1. Keith Packard had also squeezed in a change for wrapping AddTraps in EXA and Damage.
X Server 1.5 RC5 (v188.8.131.525) was therefore pushed out just a few hours after 1.5 RC4 with this ABI numbering fix and Keith's change. The announcement can be found on the X.Org mailing list.
