An X Server 1.6.2 Pre-Release Made It Out
Written by Michael Larabel in X.Org on 9 May 2009 at 07:06 AM EDT. 11 Comments
With the release of X.Org 7.5 with X Server 1.7 not coming until at least July, Keith Packard is readying a second update in the X Server 1.6 series. Early this morning Keith announced the release of an X Server 1.6.2 pre-release.

This X Server 1.6.2 pre-release known as v1.6.1.901 contains just over a dozen fixes since the release of X Server 1.6.1 back in April. Generally we have not encountered X Server pre-releases for new point releases, but this time around there is one and hopefully it will lead to a few more fixes coming about prior to the official release of X Server 1.6.2.

If you are interested in grabbing the source code to the latest X Server 1.6.2 pre-release or want to view the 15 or so changes that make up xorg-server, you can find it on the X.Org mailing list.
