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

X configuration has been the last place on my Linux machines that I have still had problems getting a decent configuration. The steps toward automagic have made this worse as I have had to disable EDID support on a couple of systems with 6-year-old CRT's. I hope to finally see a system that won't screw up if you boot with the monitor off.

I'm also excited for the implications for multiple monitors. I hope this doesn't come across as negative. There have been (and may yet be) some real growing pains as xorg 7 has matured, but It had a long was to go from where Xfree86 was forked, to where it needed to go

KUDOS on this important milestone
