If all goes according to plan, X.Org 7.4 will finally be released this month. This release isn't quite as elaborate as X.Org 7.3, which introduced input hot-plugging, EXA enhancements, and RandR 1.2 to just name a few features, but X.Org 7.4 is another update better enhancing this X server. In this article, we are presenting a release overview of the features to be found in X.Org 7.4, what's been delayed, and how this release is panning out.
This xorg release was exciting about 3 months ago...now it is late and simply meh. I shudder to think when 7.5 will come around how many features they're going to have to cut in order to make it timely. You know it is bad when half they features quoted are osx features.
