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.
