Written by Michael Larabel in X.Org on 31 January 2009 at 07:54 AM EST. 4 Comments
X Server 1.6 was supposed to be out nearly a month ago, but today we are finally getting closer to nearing this much anticipated release. Intel's Keith Packard has announced the second release candidate for X Server 1.6.0. The RC2 release is arriving almost three weeks after the first release candidate was made available. Fixed in this release is a few RandR and input changes, but a majority of the work deals with Apple's XQuartz in the server.

It looks like we will now see the final release of X Server 1.6.0 in early February. X Server 1.6.0 introduces RandR 1.3, Direct Rendering Infrastructure 2, Predictable Pointer Acceleration, and other improvements.
