Peter Hutterer has announced the first release candidate for X Server 1.7.5. This new test build is coming less than a month after the release of X Server 1.7.4 and its change-log isn't particularly exciting, especially considering the fact that most of the X.Org developers are currently down in New Zealand for Linux.Conf.Au. X Server 1.7.5 RC1 (a.k.a. xorg-server contains a couple XQuartz fixes and a few other bits, but Peter promises X Server 1.7.5 RC2 will be more lively.

The X Server 1.7.5 RC1 release announcement can be found on the X.Org mailing list. Traditionally there haven't been so many X Server point releases for a given branch, but X Server 1.8 isn't due out until the end of March and as a result a number of distributions shipping major updates this quarter or next are opting to use the stable X Server 1.7 series.
