Just in time for the Alpha 1 release of Ubuntu 10.04
, X.Org 7.5
with X Server 1.7
has been pulled into the Lucid Lynx
package repository. With this push of new X.Org 7.5 packages comes a number of other upstream X package updates along with rebuilds of the other non-updated drivers so that they will work against this latest stable X Server.
This X.Org 7.5 pull though should really not come as any surprise since we have already talked extensively about the X stack for Ubuntu 10.04
along with the fact that Ubuntu Lucid is getting Nouveau kernel mode-setting support
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Alpha 1 will be out this Thursday, the 10th of December. With Ubuntu 10.04 already boasting the Linux 2.6.32 kernel, X Server 1.7 / X.Org 7.5, and other core changes, you can expect to see the first Linux benchmarks
of the Lucid Lynx this week at Phoronix.
