The X Server 1.4.1
bug-fix release came out 212 days later than anticipated
and X Server 1.5.0
was released months later than scheduled. X.Org 7.4
in fact hasn't even been released yet and that was supposed to come back in May
. However, just twenty days after X Server 1.5.0 was released, we now have X Server 1.5.1.
Red Hat's Adam Jackson
has just announced the X Server 1.5.1 release on the X.Org mailing list
. This point release just includes conditionalizing Composite-based backing store on pScreen->backingStoreSupport (compliments of NVIDIA), moving RELEASE_DATE below AC_INIT, disabling shared pixmaps for EXA
, and fixing panoramiX request and reply swapping.
The source-code can be downloaded immediately and expect this to be quickly adopted by Linux distributions that are already tracking X Server 1.5 / X.Org 7.4. With this fixer-up release now out there, hopefully X.Org 7.4 will make it out before the end of the month.
