X.Org Server 1.17 was released back in February while finally today two X.Org DDX drivers are finally shipping xorg-server 1.17 support in released form.

The new driver updates this weekend are xf86-video-s3virge 1.10.7 and xf86-video-chips 1.2.6. These releases were done by Matt Turner who has still been caring for some of these X.Org drivers for obsolete graphics processors.

Both driver updates have just a handful of fixes each, including support for building against the already prevalent X.Org Server 1.17.
