was supposed to be released on September 10
, but that didn't happen. Though our notes on the X.Org 7.4 release can be read here
(the article was automatically published as I was traveling all day without Internet access, so I was wagering on not another delay). Today though Daniel Stone has laid out the plans for X.Org 7.5
Beyond what is planned for X Server 1.6
, X Server 1.7 will be the release due as part of X.Org 7.5. The feature freeze for X Server 1.7 is planned for the 21st of January 2009 and the 31st of February will mark the code freeze for this cycle with an X Server 22.214.171.1241 / X.Org 7.5 Beta 1 release. A second beta and release candidate are both planned for a March release. Then if all goes according to plan, X.Org 7.5 / X Server 1.7 will be released on April 1, 2008. However, Daniel Stone notes in his mailing list message
1st April 2009: Release 7.5, makes good April Fool's story. If not, Phoronix gets to run '7.5 released ... nah, X.Org didn't release on time again! April Fool's! Ha!'. Either way, everyone's a winner.
