X.Org Server 1.19 Gets First Point Release, Fixes XWayland and RandR Issues

X.Org Server 1.19.0 launched almost two months ago, on the 15th of November 2016, and we still haven’t seen a GNU/Linux distribution making the switch to the most advanced X.Org Server version to date, which brings many improvements for AMD Radeon (AMDGPU/Radeon) and Intel graphics cards. And now, two months later, X.Org Server 1.19.1 is already here as the first point release, bringing quite some changes. From the release notes, it looks like a total of 20 fixes are implemented in this maintenance version, addressing some Randr and Glamor issues, as well as to add improvements to XWayland, XFree86, Xinerama, and EDID.
