    Phoronix: X.Org 7.5 Release Schedule Revised For July

    X.Org 7.5 with the X Server 1.7 release was planned for release at the start of this month, but sadly they far from made it -- no test releases of the new X Server are even available yet. Though after reading Phoronix, Daniel Stone remembered this release schedule and has decided to give another try at X.Org 7.5...

    Another part of the problem is choice. Do I target my app for ALSA, PulseAudio, or OSS4?
    Just use OpenAL like all sane cross-platform developers? It's the same sound API in Windows, Linux, BSD's, Solaris and so.

    i see what you are saying, but it would be a great disappointment if suse failed to ship with 7.5.

    presumably ubuntu 8:10 and fedora 12 would miss out too.

    There's an easy answer for the sound problem: target the pulseaudio-safe subset of ALSA by targeting the ALSA-safe subset of OSS

    DRI2? MPX? xorg 7.5 would seem to me the the most significant release of X in some time- maybe since XFree86 forked- and maybe you could go as far as saying this is the most significant release of X since its inception? I just did!

    xorg 7.5! Gallium in Mesa! Public R600/R700 driver trees! 2009 is truly the year when everything aligns (at least improves SIGNIFICANTLY) for the open source graphics stack and why the post-Karmic Linux gaming world could be entirely different beast to its currently wimpy self.

    Jaunty is barely a warm up - it'll be be post-Karmic distros that'll really be giving Ballmer a headache, headache HEADACHE!!!

    Hahaha. I was also going to say I don't use Ubuntu but thought better of it.
