was released near the end of August and X Server 1.5.0
was released just earlier this week, but the release of X.Org 7.4 consisting of all the latest X packages has yet to make it out the door.
While the developers attending the X Developers' Summit
had taken the afternoon off to entertain themselves within the zoo
's gift shop, Daniel Stone had announced X.Org 7.4 will be released on September 10, 2008. He announced this date on the X.Org Wiki
. This means X.Org 7.4
is arriving one year and four days after the release of X.Org 7.3
... So much for this six-month release cycle. But if everything goes according to Keith Packard's plans
, a major update (X Server 1.6
) will be out this year already as an update to the 1.5 release.
