New X.Org Driver Updates Roll Out For Xorg-Server 1.19 Support

Written by Michael Larabel in X.Org on 18 November 2016 at 08:39 AM EST. 10 Comments
In addition to the Radeon and AMDGPU DDX updates yesterday, other X.Org drivers are seeing releases this week in order to support the brand new X.Org Server 1.19.

xf86-input-keyboard, xf86-input-mouse, xf86-video-vmware, xf86-input-joystick, and xf86-input-synaptics are among the DDX drivers released this week for adding xorg-server 1.19 ABI support. Details on the other changes found on these new releases can be found via xorg-announce.

But more DDX drivers are still out-of-date for being able to support X.Org Server 1.19. Other currently broken drivers can be found via this mailing list message. Many of those remaining out-of-date are for vintage graphics cards, so we'll see if they get updated in time. It will also be interesting to see if Intel issues a new xf86-video-intel release candidate or the long-awaited xf86-video-intel 3.0.
