X Server 1.8 Release Candidate Is Here

Keith Packard has just made available the first release candidate of X Server 1.8 and confirms that its release schedule is still on track. Snapshots and the Git code for X Server 1.8 go back to last year, but with a planned release by the end of March, Keith has now started working on release candidates.

X Server 1.8 will feature a move away from HAL with udev input handling and xorg.conf.d support. This major X Server update also has new DMX2 code and DRI2 2.2 support, but it is yet another X.Org Server update that goes without XKB2.
