X Input 2.0 Merged Into The X Server
Just as planned, the X Input 2 protocol for X.Org has entered the master X Server code-base. X Input 2 (or Xi2 for short) is a significant update over the original X Input extension and allows for Multi-Pointer X support and other enhanced input features. With this code finally entering the mainline server it means that MPX / X Input 2.0 will indeed be features of X Server 1.7 / X.Org 7.5, which are scheduled to be released around August.
The message announcing this code merger was made on the xorg-devel mailing list.
