    Phoronix: X.Org Server 1.9 Makes It Out On Time!

    Keith Packard has announced the official release of X.Org Server 1.9 this evening. Besides this release offering up various bug-fixes and minor improvements, this X Server release is noteworthy as it happens to be the first release in recent times to actually make it out on time. X.Org Server 1.9 hit its original release schedule of being released on the 20th of August...

              Does this Xserver support VGAswitcheroo without an Xserver restart.?

              Or is that going to be for a later version?

                  I think 1.10 is the next version we're going to see.

                    What's up with the "Xorg" version numbers? What is "Xorg 7.6"? I've never understood that. I've never installed Xorg... just the server.


                    for instance, Gentoo has this package which doesn't install anything at all other than pull in a bunch of other dependencies...

                    Code:
                    * x11-base/xorg-x11
                         Available versions:  7.2 7.4-r1

                         Description:         An X11 implementation maintained by the X.Org Foundation (meta package)
                    Which I've never actually installed. I use this:

                    Code:
