X11, Window Managers It has been one year and four days since X.Org 7.3 was released and a number of months since X.Org 7.4 was supposed to be released, but today X.Org 7.4 is scheduled to finally make it out the door! This release is shipping quite late and with a slimmed down set of features, but in this article we have more details on what this release holds in store for the Linux desktop community and why it may be a short-lived release.

I think the problem has more to do with waiting for the companies with closed drivers to catch up. Even with all the advances that got cut from 7.4, the nvidia legacy drivers still don't support the ABI changes to the xserver-1.5 and their non-legacy driver barely makes the cut. And this issue has been known for quite a while. Not sure about drivers elsewhere...
