Title: Ship Xorg 7.5 / x-server 1.7

openSUSE-11.2: Rejected by Stephan Kulow (coolo)
reject date: 2009-07-29 10:43:55
reject reason: update too late
Priority
Requester: Important

openSUSE-11.3: Candidate
Priority
Requester: Important
Projectmanager: Important

Requested by: Michael Löffler (michl19)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Xorg 7.5 / x-server 1.7 (due: mid august) By the time 11.2 arrives in
mid november the x-server 1.6 will already be over six months old, and
X.org 7.4 itself will be over a year old. The inclusion of X.org 7.5
and kernel 2.6.31 will keep 11.2 fresh and relevant throughout its nine
month life, and prevent the perception of staleness among suse
enthusiasts in 2010.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: The inclusion for X.org 7.5 will keep 11.2 fresh and
relevant throughout its life time and prevent the perception of
staleness among SUSE enthusiasts in 2010.

I would very much like to see opensuse 11.2 ship with X.org 7.5/xserver
1.7.
with opensuse's longer release cycle it seems daft to lumber 11.2 with
a year 2008 X.org release in a distribution whose life-cycle mainly
covers the year 2010. especially for the sake of a few weeks.

In case you haven't heard they have again delayed the release and are
now hoping to get it out in Sept.

#3: Stephan Kulow (coolo) (2009-07-29 10:43:47) (reply to #2)
thanks - that kills the feature

#4: Mukul Singhal (mukuls) (2009-08-11 20:17:49)
Still I would love to have X.org 7.5 available as update in 11.2 asap.
I hate seeing openSUSE lacking behind Ubuntu.

#5: Matthias Hopf (mhopf) (2009-08-12 12:11:34) (reply to #4)
We will not change the version number of X with an online update for a
released product if there is not a very good reason for that.
For those that want to test the bleeding edge there is always X11:
XOrg.

#6: Dean Hilkewich (deanjo13) (2009-08-26 19:05:59) (reply to #4)
Actually Ubuntu isn't including them as well in their next release.

When will we see xserver 1.7 in X11:XOrg?

#8: Stefan Dirsch (sndirsch) (2009-10-24 01:16:07) (reply to #7)
After openSUSE 11.2 has been released we can work on updating X11:XOrg
to X.Org 7.5. Possibly still this year. It's a lot of work. Replacing
douzens of tarballs, adjusting patches, etc.

#9: Stefan Dirsch (sndirsch) (2010-02-15 08:24:02) (reply to #8)
This is basically done, but not reflected yet in the package version
number.

#10: Matthew Ayres (solar_granulation) (2010-02-16 23:22:06) (reply to
#9)
It's good to see it coming, I look forward to 11.3!

#11: Glenn Doig (doiggl) (2010-02-20 08:15:57)
can version be updated to  X11R7.5 as its been released
http://xorg.freedesktop.org/releases/X11R7.5/

+ Please read my comment #9. Thanks.
