Under the release management of Apple's Jeremy Huddleston, the first release candidate for the first point release in the X.Org Server 1.9 series is now available. X.Org Server 1.9.1 will be the first update to X.Org Server 1.9, which was released in August, and should make it out around the same time as the X.Org 7.6 katamari release later in October.

The X.Org Server 1.9.1 release isn't limited to bug-fixes only, but Jeremy has also pulled in RandR (the Resize and Rotate extension) support for XQuartz, which is used by Apple on Mac OS X. There's also now 18bpp support in XFree86 and NDS32 architecture support in XFree86.

Besides these minor new features, there are a handful of bug-fixes, which are laid out in the xorg-server 1.9.1 RC1 release announcement. All new development work meanwhile is going into X.Org Server 1.10, which is scheduled to be released early next year.
