The X Server 1.6 release schedule
called for the first release candidate to come about two weeks after the second beta
. We ended up getting a third beta
but more than two weeks have now passed and there is no X Server 1.6 release candidate available. It should have arrived earlier this week, but there hasn't even been any Git activity to the server-1.6-branch
in nine days.
Since the X Server 1.6 Beta 3 release there has been a handful of commits mostly pertaining to XQuartz, X Input, and RandR. Hopefully the X Server 1.6
release will still arrive in early January, but it doesn't look like it will meet the planned January 5th release date.
X Server 1.6 is bringing RandR 1.3
, Direct Rendering Infrastructure 2
, X Input 1.5 Device Properties
, and Predictable Pointer Acceleration
To those of you celebrating Christmas or other holidays, Merry Christmas.
