Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Is Using X.Org Server 1.9

Last August we reported that Apple's lead X.Org engineer, Jeremy Huddleston, had stepped up to take over stable release management of the X.Org Server 1.9 series. The assumption was that Apple was planning to make X.Org Server 1.9.x available within their forthcoming Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion" operating system rather than the old X.Org Server 1.4 found with Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard". After trying out the latest Mac OS X 10.7 build, this is indeed the case.

Jeremy keeps pushing out new X.Org Server 1.9 stable updates to bring XQuartz fixes for Apple and various other bug-fixes for users of the xorg-server under Mac OS X, Linux, and other operating systems. With the Mac OS X 10.7 developer preview that Apple began seeding to developers last week, X.Org Server 1.9 can in fact be found.

For X applications on Apple's operating system, this developer preview build is X.Org Release 7.5 with X.Org Server 1.9.4. The build date is 2011-02-19.

Can anyone guess where Apple's Lion will next be found? Yes, Mac OS X 10.7 is making its way to OpenBenchmarking.org.
