X.Org Server 1.8.1 Gets Ready For May Release
Phoronix: X.Org Server 1.8.1 Gets Ready For May Release
X.Org Server 1.9 is the key interest now among X developers working on the graphics and input stacks with its release coming as soon as August, but Peter Hutterer once again is taking over the role of maintaining the stable X.Org Server branch. With X.Org Server 1.7.7 being nearly out of the way, the first point release for X.Org Server 1.8 is being prepared for release...
"For distribution vendors, X.Org Server 1.8.1 now offers two directories for carrying distribution-specific patches and the other for custom, user-installed patches."
Have "configuration snippets" instead of "patches"? That's the impression I get from the actual announce mail.
