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.

you don't get xv acceleration either... No 3d is fine for me but I can't use it without xv.

With nv, exa acceleration is still done in software as the driver is 2d only (no 3d engine code) and some xrender operations require 3d hardware (if using hardware acceleration)...
