Apple's Jeremy Huddleston has just released X.Org Server 1.10.2. This second point release was set to be released yesterday, but then there was fear of a regression causing a delay (turns out it's no longer reproducible), so now we have a holiday weekend release of xorg-server 1.10.2.

X.Org Server 1.10.2 had went through two release candidates and offers a plethora of fixes spanning the GLX, XQuartz, and X Input areas in particular. Apple's using X.Org Server 1.10.x in the forthcoming Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion" operating system, which led them to stepping up to the plate to maintain the stable point releases and for working out the various XQuartz bugs. Mac OS X Lion is set to be released within the next month or two.

The release announcement for X.Org Server 1.10.2 can be found on the mailing list. The next major release of the X.Org Server, version 1.11, is expected to be available in August. The merge window for X.Org Server 1.11 is closing next week. Meanwhile, an X.Org Server 1.10.3 point release will be out in a few weeks (RC1 of 1.10.3 is planned to be pushed in three weeks).
