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.

Then you'll probably be pleased to know that intel wants to release a special release this year of xserver 1.6 (xorg 7.4 comes with xserver 1.5). That release will have the neat intel features coming up uxa,gem and dri2.

I hope this is the case but I don't exactly trust Xorg release schedules. I wouldn't be surprised if we have to wait 6 months to a year until the next version is released, or we will get another intermediate release that lacks many of the features that were promised for xorg 7.4.
