The xorg-server 1.17.2 build fixes the recent XWayland security advisory, fixes an int10 setup issue for VESA, fixes frame-buffer setup for big-endian CPUs, and has a few other fixes. There's also a build fix for compiling X.Org Server 1.17 under the GCC 5.x compiler.

More details via the release announcement for this minor point release by Adam Jackson. Meanwhile, X.Org Server 1.18 is expected later this summer as the next major update to the xorg-server.
