The first pre-release for X Server 1.6.2 came a month ago followed by a release candidate about one week ago, but this afternoon Keith Packard has announced the final release of X Server 1.6.2.

In X Server 1.6.2 are a handful of bug fixes and improvements that should be stable for the X Server 1.6 series while the grunt of the development work has been focused on X Server 1.7 / X.Org 7.5, which will hopefully be released in late summer.

The X Server 1.6.2 release announcement can be read on the xorg-announce list.
