Version 1.7.4 of the X.Org Server has been released this morning. This point release continues to bring new bug-fixes to the X Server 1.7 series branch since its release last year. All major development work continues to be focused on X Server 1.8, which is expected for release in March.

X Server 1.7.4 just brings a collection of fixes, but none of the changes are too very exciting for Linux desktop end-users. Planned for release in five weeks is already X Server 1.7.5, which will continue bringing forth bug-fixes, some of which are back-ported from master / X Server 1.8. With some distributions like Ubuntu 10.04 LTS opting to stick with the X Server 1.7 series, these bug-fix releases do carry a bit more weight.

The release announcement for xorg-server 1.7.4 can be read on xorg-announce.
