X.Org Server 1.8.2 To Come About Soon
X.Org Server 1.8.1 was released just one month ago, but Peter Hutterer is now preparing the release of X.Org Server 1.8.2. Due to time constraints, this is also the last planned point release he plans to put out.
An X.Org Server 1.8.2 release candidate (officially it's known as xorg-server 126.96.36.1991) was put out last night and it offers up nearly three dozen bug-fixes since the first X Server 1.8 point release. The most notable set of fixes to be found in the X.Org Server 1.8.2 code include a number of DRI2 fixes by Intel's Jesse Barnes.
While the earlier X.Org Server 1.7 series had seven point releases, Peter is planning to end his X.Org Server 1.8 point releases after this second release in June. Peter is running low on time, but will allow anyone else to take over this role if interested. Fortunately, however, X.Org Server 1.9 should already be coming soon if it meets its August deadline.
This first release candidate for X.Org Server 1.8.2 along with its change-log can be found on the X.Org mailing list.
