Keith Packard pushed in 22 new commits to the server-1.6-branch of the X Server Git repository last night and then tagged X Server 1.6 Beta 3. This update is mostly made up of RandR 1.3 work along with a few commits related to X Input and DRI2.

The xf86-video-radeonhd driver was first to pickup RandR 1.3 support with panning, but committed to their respective Git repositories last night was RandR 1.3 panning support for both the xf86-video-ati and xf86-video-intel drivers.

The next development release for X Server 1.6 should be a release candidate later this month. The final release of X Server 1.6 is expected in early January.
