X Server 1.4.1 Is Released, No Joke
Phoronix: X Server 1.4.1 Is Released, No Joke
Today -- just 212 days after the planned November launch date -- X Server 1.4.1 is finally released! Daniel Stone announced its release this morning on the xorg mailing list. X Server 1.4.1 has had 62 changes to it since the 1.4.1 pre-release, and that release had 46 changes, which brings the change total for this release up to 108. Even though X Server 1.4.1 has more than 100 changes, it wasn't enough to clear out the blocker bug, which still has two open bugs.
Most visible project doesn't get much love
In a twist of irony, X11 is literally the most visible part of GNU/Linux and just doesn't get much love overall. It's like giving more attention to a car on the road than the road itself. You don't have a good road, you won't like driving ANY car over it ... except maybe a 4x4.
This is one project that does need some money thrown at it to attract more talent. I'm sure the developers there (paid and unpaid) would really like some relief.
