With the six month release cycle, X.Org 7.4 is planned for release in February of 2008. Some of the features so far on their planning page includes Multi-Pointer X which provides multiple cursor support, support for UnixWare, SELinux security module, and a Solaris Trusted Extensions security module. The two security modules will use XACE (X Access Control Extension). Find out more on the Wiki.
