"We are proud to inform all XFree86 enthusiasts that the rpms of the very latest XFree86 release 4.0 for SuSE Linux are now available for download on SuSE´s ftp site ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/X/XFree86/XFree86-4.0-SuSE

XFree86 4.0 is the first official release of the new XFree86 4. XFree86 4 represents a significant redesign of the XFree86 X server. It is very important to keep in mind that XFree86 4 is still very much in development, and it contains a lot of new work. That means two things: there is a lot of new exciting stuff to try, but being new code, it hasn't had nearly as much of a workout as the stable 3.3.x releases. If you're looking for a well-tested, stable release, and can't afford the inconveniences that new software can sometimes cause, then you are probably better off sticking with the 3.3.x releases for now.
