Back on the 2nd of October, X Server 1.7.0 was released after several delays with getting this major, MPX-bearing update released. However, the X.Org 7.5 release of all of the updated X packages was not released at the same time as X Server 1.7, in fact, it's still not released. Early this morning though the first release candidate of the X.Org 7.5 packages were made available.

Since the release of X Server 1.7.0 there has been a flow of X package updates that did not have stable releases available that incorporated the bug-fixes and new features that accumulated in many of the packages since the X.Org 7.4 release more than a year ago. Most of the X.Org packages are now ready for the 7.5 release, but there are still a few more expected before X.Org 7.5 is officially released. Additionally, X Server 1.7.1 will be released in time for X.Org 7.5.

The X.Org 7.5 Release Candidate 1 announcement was made by Sun's Alan Coopersmith on the X.Org mailing list. X.Org 7.5 should be out within a few weeks.
