X11, Window Managers "Five months after release of X11R7.0, the modularized and autotooled release of the MIT Licensed X Window System source code, the X.Org Foundation has issued its first modular roll-up release. X11R7.1 supports Linux, Solaris, and BSD systems. It includes important new server and driver features for embedded systems, 64 bit platforms, enhanced operating system support, and accelerated indirect GLX support. It most importantly demonstrates to developers and industry immediate benefits of modularization."

# New GLX extension: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap This extension allows GLX clients to efficiently bind pixmaps - such as those provided by the Composite extension for redirected drawing - to OpenGL textures. This enables the compositing manager to bring the full force of OpenGL to bear on the problem of rendering the desktop.

:D Fantastic! Looking forward to trying this badboy
