[ANNOUNCE] xorg-server

| Not a lot of fixes, LCA rather slowed down the 
| patch flow. There's a number of patches in the 
| queue for master, so I expect to be 
| a bit more exciting.


Element media.OS v1.0 Beta Now Available

,----[ Quote ]
| The first beta of what will become Element 
| MediaOS version 1.0, an HTPC centric 
| distribution based on Ubuntu 9.10, is 
| available for testers and developers. Element 
| is designed for HTPCs and aims to integrate 
| GTK applications into a ten-foot user 
| interface through a unique implementation of 
| the XFCE environment. Its started as my own 
| project to set up an effective media center 
| for my own HTPC that would allow me to utilise 
| certain GTK applications without straining my 
| eyes to read the dialog fonts. I decided it 
| would probably be beneficial to other users 
| who were seeking something similar so I am 
| hoping I can get an active community of media 
| center enthusiasts to get behind it and 
| support it.

| The second (and likely last) release 
| candidate for 1.7.4 is now available. Dave 
| has backported the fb patches to 1.7, as said 
| in the commit it's multiple commits from 
| master squashed into one to help bisecting. 
| That issue should hopefully be fixed now but 
| if it comes back, I'll cut another RC before 
| 1.7.4.


X Server 1.8 Snapshot 2 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| With there being just more than three months
| left until the planned release of X Server
| 1.8, Keith Packard has just issued the second
| snapshot for those interested in trying out
| this developmental X.Org server. The first X
| Server 1.8 snapshot came two months ago, but
| this second snapshot is arriving later than
| expected after having to deal with some bugs.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
