X.Org Server 1.9.2 Should Be Here By Christmas

Apple's Jeremy Huddleston released X.Org Server 1.9.1 this past weekend, and now he has laid out plans for the next point release in the xorg-server 1.9 series. This release will carry the same type and quality of fixes as presented in X.Org Server 1.9.1 and should be released in December.

Jeremy's current plans for X.Org Server 1.9.1 have the first release candidate coming on 12 November, a second release candidate on 3 December, and then either an RC3 or final release on 10 December.

This news was announced by Huddleston on xorg-devel.

On a related note, it's been decided by the X.Org Board of Directors to participate in Google's Code-In program, which provides students between the ages of 13 and 18 years old various open-source work to participate in during their winter holiday. X.Org has long participated in Google's Summer of Code, which is a much bigger program and runs the duration of the summer holiday, but the Google Code In is designed for smaller tasks.

On this X Wiki page are a few ideas for any able students interested in participating. Among the ideas are small code tasks like adding X-Video attributes to GNOME/KDE display applets, support for more RandR output attributes in GNOME/KDE display applets, and exporting KMS connector attributes via sysfs. There's also non-code work like improving the documentation, helping out with the testing process, and research.
