    Default X Server 1.7 Has Its First Snapshot

    Phoronix: X Server 1.7 Has Its First Snapshot

    It's coming late, but it looks like we may finally see X.Org 7.5 in the next month. The biggest component making up X.Org 7.5 is X Server 1.7, which is finally getting underway with test releases after its code was frozen earlier this week. Peter Hutterer this time around had announced the release of X Server 1.6.99.900, which is the first testing snapshot of X Server 1.7 and will be followed by a few release candidates...

    This has nothing to do with X server releases. X.org 7.5 will be released when it's ready. It will contain X server 1.6 if X server 1.7 isn't ready by then as said in the schedule.

    Well I've just compiled xserver 1.7-rc and everything works fine. I've pulled from git every dependency needed for xserver and also mesa and xf86-video-intel snapshots, funny enough Xorg binary remained the same as the one from xserver 1.6.4-rc

    No bugs to report yet
