"While the new kernel versions mainly correct minor bugs,
X.org's next generation X Server offers a range of improvements.
Various code segments released by AMD developers allow the X.org
open source drivers for Radeon GPUs to utilise the 2D and 3D
acceleration features available with Radeon series 5000 graphics
"New X Server
"Right on schedule and without the delays of sometimes up to
several months that were customary up until a year ago, Keith
Packard released version 1.9 of X.org's X Server at the end of last
week. However, the new version intended for Fedora 13 and Ubuntu
10.10 offers no major new features, but focuses on minor
improvements and bug fixes. A new authentication mechanism for the
still emerging DRI2 allows X Servers to be compiled, for instance,
without the libdrm. The "buffers invalidation" feature for DRI2 and
various changes to XInput are to improve performance. The X Server
can now also start without output devices, and numerous
streamlining measures simplify code maintenance, as well as the
adding of future code extensions."
