It's coming late
, but it looks like we may finally see X.Org 7.5 in the next month
. The biggest component making up X.Org 7.5
is X Server 1.7
, which is finally getting underway with test releases after its code was frozen earlier this week.
Peter Hutterer this time around had announced the release of X Server 184.108.40.2060, which is the first testing snapshot of X Server 1.7 and will be followed by a few release candidates. He has also codenamed X Server 1.7 the "Depressed Dodo".
Among the features that X Server 1.7 delivers is revised input handling, X Input 2
with support for Multi-Pointer X
, VGA Arbitration
support, EXA mixed pixmaps support, and then many bug fixes and other work.
The xorg-server 220.127.116.110 release announcement with the short change-log can be read on the mailing list
