X.Org 7.5 Release Candidate 1 Is Now Available
Phoronix: X.Org 7.5 Release Candidate 1 Is Now Available
Back on the 2nd of October, X Server 1.7.0 was released after several delays with getting this major, MPX-bearing update released. However, the X.Org 7.5 release of all of the updated X packages was not released at the same time as X Server 1.7, in fact, it's still not released...
Why does it sound like phoronix is whining and bitching all the time?
its like a little kid in the back seat of a car "are we there yet?" "no" "are we there yet?" ... Does not look good or professional.
And why do you sound like an emotional teenager who's already had enough in his life?

It helps asking for volunteers without directly emphasizing it.
How else would you point out that there's a problem in the release system? At least he was not going, "OMGGG, about damn time, Alan Coopersmith!!"
Love how the core is called "katamari".

To me, this sounds like putting pressure on X.org devs to release buggy version.

It's a sign of the site's popularity, and therefore its good grasp and coverage of all things to do with graphics in Linux, that a post on this site should be considered "pressure" of any kind. IMHO.
