An X Server 1.6.2 Pre-Release Made It Out
Phoronix: An X Server 1.6.2 Pre-Release Made It Out
With the release of X.Org 7.5 with X Server 1.7 not coming until at least July, Keith Packard is readying a second update in the X Server 1.6 series. Early this morning Keith announced the release of an X Server 1.6.2 pre-release. This X Server 1.6.2 pre-release known as v126.96.36.1991 contains just over a dozen fixes since the release of X Server 1.6.1 back in April...
Release Early, release often.
This is not really an exiting release, mostly bug and documentation fixing but these are bugs that won't annoy anymore and will let developers concentrate on new features debugging for XServer 1.7 (support for multiple pointers and some input work in general) :).
XServer 1.7 will be truly appreciated from touch-screen users, hope to see fancy rotation/resize support in software soon !
