X Server 1.6 Beta 2 Now Available
Following a slight delay, Keith Packard has now tagged the second beta for X Server 1.6 in its git repository branch. Recent the 1.6 server has received updated documentation (just man pages), an upgraded dependence on dri2proto for the continued DRI2 work, and various X Input and XQuartz improvements. The commits to the server 1.6 branch are available through cgit.
Later this month we should start seeing the release candidates for X Server 1.6 followed by the final release in January -- if all goes according to plan. X Server 1.6 brings DRI2 support, RandR 1.3, and X Input 1.5 with device properties.
To obtain X Server 1.6 Beta 2, clone the xorg/xserver git repository from FreeDesktop.org and switch to server-1.6-branch.
