It’s out there now, available in ~arch. Like always, you’ll need to rebuild your drivers, just look-up the command given by the server’s ebuild (use eread if you’ve lost the output).
This release took a little longer to unmask not because of the server (it’s a nice change). It’s because a lot of headers were moved around from library packages to proto packages and vice versa. The ABI of X libraries has not changed, but I’m pretty sure there will be compile errors in some packages.
If that’s the case, please file bugs in bugzilla.
Thanks for reading this public service announcement.
Edit: There will not be a
package.keywords list for stable users. Xorg-server 1.7 is intended for ~arch users only, at this moment. And all bugs from stable users will be closed INVALID. We will start creating lists when we want to stabilize it.
