X Server 1.7.2 was released at the end of November and then X Server 1.7.3 was released at the start of this month to fix two show-stopping issues in the earlier point release. However, the first release candidate for X Server 1.7.4 has now been made available by Peter Hutterer.

As all new development work is going into X Server 1.8, which will be released in March, these 1.7.x releases are just carrying various bug-fixes. With X Server 1.7.4 RC1 there is only a handful of bug-fixes that touch EXA, X-Video, and DIX, but nothing particularly exciting.

The X Server 1.7.4 RC1 release announcement can be read on xorg-announce. The official release of X Server 1.7.4 is expected in late December or early January, but at least another release candidate should be out before that time.
