Despite its age, development on X has not slowed down - in fact, it only seems to have picked up. A few weeks ago, we had kernel-based mode setting, and today we have the X server running as user instead of root.

Now that you mention it, I think it's "present perfect." Which, amusingly enough, is a bit of both - the present tense of "has" used with a past participle.
