The first pre-release
for X Server 1.6.2 came a month ago followed by a release candidate
about one week ago, but this afternoon Keith Packard has announced the final release of X Server 1.6.2.
In X Server 1.6.2 are a handful of bug fixes and improvements that should be stable for the X Server 1.6
series while the grunt of the development work has been focused on X Server 1.7
/ X.Org 7.5
, which will hopefully be released in late summer.
The X Server 1.6.2 release announcement can be read on the xorg-announce list
