As opposed to being pushed out on the first of November, Daniel Stone (the release manager), has delayed the release of X server 1.4.1 by ten days. X server 1.4.1 will now be released on November 11 (permitting no more delays) and will contain a variety of bug-fixes and input fixes for extended events currently found in X server 1.4.0. The list of waiting and merged patches as well as other X server 1.4 details can be found on the X.Org Wiki
. With X.Org currently being criticized for its degrading release quality
, this X server 1.4.1 delay is hopefully good news and will result in a more polished release.
Daniel had also mentioned on the X.Org mailing list
that the X server 1.5.0 release schedule has yet to be finalized and will likely not be known until the grunt of the libpciaccess work is completed.
