RE: Will 7.10 have it?

I'd venture to say. NO.

The purpose of a feature freeze is to work out all bugs and kinks, and the X server can be the source of a LOT of kinks with a distro. It will be in the next release or if you're adventurous you'll be able to install it via the package manager in a week or so.

Of course don't expect them to do tech support on it for a while.
