    Default X.Org Server 1.11 Release Planned For Mid-August

    Phoronix: X.Org Server 1.11 Release Planned For Mid-August

    It seems as if the X.Org project has finally formed a habit of wanting to release on time. In years past, even point releases have been more than 200 days late and there hasn't been much to their release schedules that were actually executed on time. It's something I had long pointed out and have received jabs back in turn, but the past few X.Org Server releases have been tagged on time, plus or minus a few days. It looks like X.Org Server 1.11 may be another on-time release, it's at least being planned right out of the starting gate...

    I wonder why six months rather than keeping track with the kernel's roughly three-month schedule?

    It's a much less actively developed project. There's not much point in releasing every 3 months, since very little would be changed and that would just increase the workload on developers.
