X.Org Server 1.9.4 Released; 1.9.5 Expected

Before ending out last week, Jeremy Huddleston released X.Org Server 1.9.4. At least one more release, X.Org Server 1.9.5, is also expected before this branch is retired in favor of X Server 1.10, which will be released in the coming weeks.

X.Org Server 1.9.4 isn't too exciting as it just pulls in about two dozen bug-fixes. There's a couple fixes to EXA, DRI2, EDID, and RandR, but nothing too noteworthy. A bulk of the fixes are by Jeremy himself for XQuartz.

The XQuartz fixes shouldn't be much of a surprise as earlier xorg-server 1.9 point releases were also dominated by XQuartz fixes. Jeremy Huddleston is also an Apple employee and its the first time he has taken over xorg-server release management for the stable branch. It's expected the reasoning behind this is that with Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion", due out later this year, they will provide support for X.Org Server 1.9. With Mac OS X 10.6, their X Server support is still living in the 1.4 series.

The X.Org Server 1.9.4 release announcement can be found in this mailing list message.
