X.Org 7.5 Is Frozen, XKB2 Gets Postponed Again
X.Org 7.5 with X Server 1.7 was supposed to be released earlier this month, but that didn't happen on schedule nor their earlier release plans. However, this evening, Daniel Stone has laid out the new plans for X.Org 7.5 / X Server 1.7.
The key points from Daniel's email are:
- XKB2 has been postponed, again. Peter Hutterer and Daniel are now looking at having version 2.0 of the X Keyboard Extension ready for X Server 1.8, which we anticipate will come in the first half of 2010. Fortunately, X Server 1.7 will still be home to X Input 2.0 with Multi-Pointer X support.
- The code for X Server 1.7 in the master branch is now frozen. Branching of X Server 1.7 will likely come in a few days.
- The first development snapshot of X Server 1.7 (v188.8.131.520) will be rolled over the weekend. A second release (v184.108.40.2061) should be out shortly thereafter.
- Daniel is hoping for a final X.Org 7.5 / X Server 1.7 release around the time of the 2009 X Developers' Conference, which is taking place from the 28th to the 30th of September. Basically, we are now looking at a final release in what will hopefully be one month.
