X Server 1.6 Gets A Bit Closer To Release
X Server 1.6 was supposed to be released by the end of 2008 as Intel had called for it to be a strictly time-based release. However, the release schedule ended up putting it as a early January release (the 5th of January to be exact). The release schedule was being closely followed up until late December and then come January there was no X Server 1.6 release in sight. To this date, X Server 1.6 still hasn't been released, but it's slowly getting there.
Last night Keith Packard had tagged X Server 126.96.36.1993, which is the third release candidate for X Server 1.6. This version is coming after 24 new commits were made to the X Server 1.6 branch. While the release is getting closer, there are still five open bugs that block the release.
Once released, X Server 1.6 brings RandR 1.3, Predictable Pointer Acceleration, Direct Rendering Infrastructure 2, and other features to the desktops of Linux users.
