The pieces that are being released are the tools needed to take advantage of Xgl and are not part of X directly.

??? Like what for example?

And if they do matter so much. Is Novell going to publish them as well or not?

Thanks. Although you should tell article to keep up, not me (yes, I follow xorg mailing list and I know about code drop in January).

[from article]
"The code for XGL developed at Novell will be made available next week, Friedman says. However, Reveman has already returned some of it to the open-source development community, according to bulletin board postings."

It is just common for people to be inquisitive about some things when developed in quiet. Like stetic for example (yes, I know it is in SVN and regularly updated, but some people like me want to actualy see that in use from binary packages at least).

p.s. I bet this is not the answer on "What" part of the question:) Maybe I souded too much like "conspiracy theory", but that was the least of my intention
