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.

Wicked! I agree with this sentiment 100%.

If people are so upset that xorg has dropped some features, then maybe those people should volunteer. I'm sure that xorg needs beta testers, documentation writers, developers, christ donate some cash. Obviously they need developers the most, but every little bit helps.

Development is never free, even FOSS development.
