News, tips, partners, and perspectives for the Oracle Solaris operating system

X.Org updates & LinuxWorld Forum

Alan Coopersmith
Senior Principal Software Engineer

I haven't written lately (which is probably why I've fallen off the top 50 most popular blogs on the blogs.sun.com front page) since I've been very busy finishing up work for the upcoming Java Desktop System release for the new Sun Opteron workstations and for Solaris 10, but the quickly-growing group of people working on the X.Org releases have been busy too. A flurry of checkins led up to the feature freeze over the weekend for the X11R6.8.0 release, including all of the features I mentioned in my blog entry in June. Now testing and bug fixing is underway to meet the planned release date of August 25. The release status and progress is being tracked in this wiki page and on the X.Org Release Wranglers mailing list.

Also this week, several people from X.Org (including yours truly for some strange reason) will be at LinuxWorld Expo San Francisco for a panel discussion on The X Window System and Related Critical Foundational Technologies on Thursday at 1pm. There will also be people manning the X.Org booth on the show floor if you want to stop by and visit.
