    Phoronix: X.Org 7.4 To Be Released Today

    It has been one year and four days since X.Org 7.3 was released and a number of months since X.Org 7.4 was supposed to be released, but today X.Org 7.4 is scheduled to finally make it out the door! This release is shipping quite late and with a slimmed down set of features, but in this article we have more details on what this release holds in store for the Linux desktop community and why it may be a short-lived release.

    1. Will the Fedora 9 repos be updated to this release?
    2. Will we finally get at least experimental support for Xorg 7.4 in fglrx in the coming months?

    Apart from that, I'm happy to hear that they finally managed to get the damn thing out

    SUPER DITTO. Plus I just heard that the updates will finally be flowing through the repos again within the next few hours.

    Maybe, at the last minute, they found some things that hadn't been removed, yet?

    it seems everything is relative! thanks to Einstein! even if Xorg is not developed at light speed!

    It actually is developed at lightspeed, so that their time does not pass at all, and to them it feels like "today" after many months

    General relativity's a bitch.
