X11, Window Managers 7.3 was released earlier today, but because the website was unreachable, we bring you this news a bit late. 7.3 includes RandR 1.2, input hotplug (both enable hotplugging of devices), improvements in KDrive, DTrace support, and more.

Will Ubuntu still ship with 1.3 xserver? (7.3 comes with 1.4). I'm not sure that ATI and Nvidia binary blobs will be compatible, probably not. Though this IS official xorg release unlike 1.3.

xserver 1.4 for example breaks video driver ABI again, converting (some?) drivers to a new PCI access stuff.

Btw. they modularised everything, so packages can be released independently (there are interdependencies of course). Unfortunately it is a bit painful to download and build each package, though distribution packagers should handle it. Xorg release is a snapshot of certain versions of (most) packages.
