X Server 1.7 Has Its First Snapshot
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 22.214.171.1240, 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 126.96.36.1990 release announcement with the short change-log can be read on the mailing list.
