The outlook turned grim for meeting the X Server 1.6 release schedule when no release candidate was out by Christmas (and we still have yet to see any tagged RC) and then when the final release date passed with no X Server 1.6 in sight. Nothing had been committed to the X Server 1.6 repository since the middle of December, but we are finally seeing some activity this afternoon.

X Server 1.6 received 34 new Git commits in the past two hours. These commits largely relate to XQuartz, but there are a few other noteworthy patches too. For instance, with XAA acceleration off-screen pixmaps are now disabled by default.

All of the latest work on X Server 1.6 can be found by checking out the X Server Git tree and switching to the server-1.6-branch branch.
