For those of you that use OpenSolaris
or the bi-weekly snapshots of Solaris Express Community Edition, the just-released SXCE Build 116 contains an updated X stack. In particular, this update brings X Server 1.6
(in particular, version 1.6.1
) and Mesa 7.4
. This change can be tracked in the OpenSolaris bug database
. As part of this upgrade, X Input 1.5 is now supported
and some other X.Org modules have also been updated.
Some of the features that X Server 1.6 brings to OpenSolaris is RandR 1.3
support, Direct Rendering Infrastructure 2
, Predictable Pointer Acceleration
, and various other improvements and bug fixes.
Pulled into this SXCE release was Mesa 7.4.1, however, Mesa 7.4.2 is currently the latest version (and a final point release in the 7.4.x series is expected in the next day or so), but already queued up
for being pulled into SXCE Build 117. Mesa 7.5
with the initial Gallium3D
support is also expected to be released at any time.
