[News] Linux Gains Better X Server Than X Server

Hash: SHA1

Wayland: A New X Server For Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| It's no secret that much of the code-base that makes up the modern-day X.Org 
| Server is old and in some places bloated. The X.Org Server continues to 
| evolve and has received a number of major additions in recent times, but 
| wouldn't a clean and lighter server that is designed around today's needs be 
| ideal? Red Hat's Kristian Høgsberg has started a new project, which is 
| currently known as Wayland, and is just that: a new lightweight X Server. 
| Wayland isn't just a rewrite of the current X Server, but instead it's a 
| small server that is designed around some of the latest graphics technologies 
| such as kernel mode-setting and the Graphics Execution Manager. Wayland also 
| has its own built-in compositing manager.         



New DMX Server Provides More Features, Less Complex

| David Reveman, a key developer of XGL and Compiz, has announced new work he
| has done on the DMX (Distributed Multi-head X) Server.


Fedora moves the X server

,----[ Quote ]
| Testers of the Fedora 10 beta (or Rawhide) have recently noticed that the X
| server has been moved from its traditional home on virtual terminal 7 to VT1.


The joy of X - master the Linux GUI

,----[ Quote ]
| If you're a Linux user you have no doubt heard of GNOME and KDE. These
| popular desktop environments are really the pinnacle of a deep iceberg of
| technology with the X-Windows graphical interface underpinning it all. Here
| are a couple of ways to tame X, kicking off a journey of unlimited ability to
| change the Linux look-and-feel.


X Server 1.5.2 Released, Brings Bug Fixes

,----[ Quote ]
| X Server 1.5.1 was only released two and a half weeks ago as a quick bug-fix
| release to X Server 1.5.0, which is the server component for X.Org 7.4, but
| today we have a third release. Adam Jackson has announced the release of X
| Server 1.5.2 with 14 changes.


[ANNOUNCE] xserver 1.5.0

,----[ Quote ]
| This is almost certainly the server that will go into Xorg 7.4.  The
| module set for same is available here:
| http://xorg.freedesktop.org/archive/preview-X11R7.4/src/
| If you see anything missing that should be present, or present that
| should be absent, yell very loudly, right now.  Otherwise that'll go
| gold in a day or two.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
