Keith Packard has just announced the release of X.Org Server 1.9 RC2, which is coming just days after the first release candidate. This second release candidate for the updated X Server pulls in most of the remaining patches that were requested prior to the RC1 release last week.

Still though there is an Xfont patch that needs to be pulled in for X.Org Server 1.9 along with the per-CRTC pixmap patches that are to make up RandR 1.4. Keith hopes these patches will be merged soon.

In total there are 20 patches making up the X Server 1.9 RC2 release. The changes can be found in the release announcement for xorg-server as it's known properly.
