Last night there was the sixth and potentially last release candidate of X.Org Server 1.9
. The xorg-server 22.214.171.1246 test release contains various fixes and documentation updates reflecting X Server 1.9 API changes. The final release of xorg-server 1.9 should be just around the corner and may come as soon as next week.
There's still a few bugs that Keith Packard would like to see addressed, but Keith Packard feels the release is in good shape and is on track for releasing on the 20th of August.
