Kernel-Log: New stable and developer kernel, Mesa 7.1 and X-Server 1.5 released

Filed under
Linux

The Linux stable series managers have released kernel versions 2.6.25.17, 2.6.26.4 and 2.6.26.5, bringing numerous fixes and improvements from their preceding versions in the 2.6.25 and 2.6.26 series. 2.6.26.5 was released to fix a problem only introduced in 2.6.26.4.

After Mesa's developers published Mesa 7.1 at the end of August, X.org's developers were able to release X-Server 1.5; depending on your point of view, it's either six months or a year late. The new X server is a central part of X.org 7.4 which is expected in the next week.

Intel developer Keith Packard has taken on the role of release manager for X Server 1.6, after the long delays in completing X Server 1.5 was slowed by Mesa delays, and he is already planning to publish 1.6 in a few months.
