Kudos To Peter Hutterer With X.Org 7.5
Phoronix: Kudos To Peter Hutterer With X.Org 7.5
X.Org 7.5 with X Server 1.7 will be arriving months late once it's released after failing to meet the original April release schedule and then failed twice with two more proposed releases during the summer. However, the latest release schedule, which puts the final release in late September or so, might actually work out this time -- in good part thanks to Peter Hutterer.Peter Hutterer is the university student from Australia that developed Multi-Pointer X (to be found in X Server 1.7) and is responsible for a great deal of other work with X.Org when it comes to input and who now works for Red Hat...
What's wrong with you guys?
All I can say is woo-hoo! Kudos to Peter.
Peter is stepping up and taking care of things, this really needed to be done. He is personally making sure things are moving forward (with the help of others, but he is the catalyst).
Yes, others deserve kudos for continuing to excellently contribute to open source. But when someone changes the direction of a project for the better they deserve special recognition.
