X Server 1.7 Finally Reaches Release Candidate
Written by Michael Larabel in X.Org on 14 September 2009 at 12:19 PM EDT. 6 Comments
It's a few months late, but the first release candidate for X Server 1.7 is now available. Peter Hutterer announced the release this morning along with freezing the X Server ABI for the 1.7 series. A X Server 1.7 snapshot was made available earlier this month, but a few more bug-fixes can be found in today's release candidate.

Peter is planning at least a second release candidate before X Server 1.7.0 is released and then the release of X.Org 7.5. Notably, X Server 1.7 brings support for Multi-Pointer X.

The X Server 1.7 RC1 release announcement with download links can be found on xorg-announce.
