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.

and if you read the first paragraph you even have another link:

about support being commited in mid-june!

They also mention what I mentioned: you have to compile some stuff from sources, because it's not packaged yet. But the code is there.
