Release Notes: This release introduces a completely modularized and autotooled source code base. EXA has been added as a new acceleration architecture to replace XAA. Freetype, Xft, fontconfig, MESA (OpenGL), and MRI were updated. XRX support and XvMC support were updated. Support for enabling and disabling extensions from the command line was added. The software Render core was enhanced. Several security fixes were integrated. Support for various operating systems was enhanced.
Release Notes: This release features the first X support for translucent windows, window animation, and window decorations like shadows. There is also support for accessibility applications, for 3D immersive user environments like Looking Glass and Croquet, and for large scale display walls using DMX (Distributed Multihead X). There are also updates and fixes to FreeType2, Xprint, XawPrintShell, Mesa, DRI, driver rotation support, Render, and many driver updates. Furthermore, this release fixes recent vulnerabilities in the X pixmap library (libXpm).
Release Notes: The X.Org repository is based on XFree86 4.4 RC2. Just before its 4.4 release, XFree86 adopted a new license possibly incompatible with the GPL. For this reason, X.Org has recreated its tree as closely as possible without importing files affected by the new license. The monolithic tree is being referred to as simply "XOrg". X11R6.7.0 contains substantial updates beyond XFree86 4.4RC2, including updated versions of Render, Xft, and fontconfig, and a greatly improved Cygwin/X port.
