    Phoronix: X.Org Server 1.13 Released With Massive Changes

    After being in development for the past half-year, and at a time when much of the ongoing Linux desktop activity for the display server/stack is being focused on Wayland, X.Org Server 1.13 was released this evening. For a change, X.Org Server 1.13 does actually pack a number of promising new features...

    Refreshing!

    It is very refreshing, humbling to see the X & Wayland developers creating a future for the Linux desktop.... Inspiring, to say the least. We need this kind of unity on the Linux distro end - focus on 2-3 distributions at most, instead of having so many.

    Here it comes masking kernel and xorg server with catalyst 12.6 legacy and still lack of usable power management on opensource drivers. But who need this when i have 5 fps gain in last year, right? yea ..

    Ubuntu 12.10 is using Xserver 1.13 so AMD Catalyst will support it soon.

    X isn't running as root because of graphics, but because of input handling.

    Too bad

    Too bad AMD are slow in bringing up their driver for latest X.org
    Too bad X.org still cant run without superuser root privileges on Linux
    Too bad Xwayland wasn't merged yet

    Great to see consistent coding style and old legacy code removed.

    What's coming in next X.org server release after this?
    More legacy code to get removed?
