xorg-server Xorg 21.1.0 - first release candidate since 1.20.0

Hello:

Just a heads-up.

Got this in my inbox this evening from xorg-announce@lists.x.org:

This is the first release candidate of Xorg 21.1.0 release.
Notable changes since 1.20 include:

  - The meson support is now fully mature. While autotools support will still be
  kept for this release series, it will be dropped afterwards.

  - Glamor support for Xvfb.

  - Variable refresh rate support in the modesetting driver.

  - XInput 2.4 support which adds touchpad gestures.
 
  - DMX DDX has been removed.
 
  - X server now correctly reports display DPI in more cases which may affect
  rendering of client applications on hi-DPI screens.

  A large number of small features and various bug fixes.

Note that since 21.1 series XWayland is released separately and thus this
release does not include it.

I expect to push subsequent release candidates roughly every two weeks.

The following is a full changelog since xserver 1.20.0. ...

--- snip ---

The changelog follows, long-ish as would be expected from such an upgrade. ie: 1.20.0 -> 21.1.0
The X.org site most surely has the details if anyone is interested in the details.

Seems that TEM was quite right.  8^D

X.org is indeed still alive.

It's good to hear xorg is not going to die for a while, especially considering there are forks of it out there...

Sometimes, things will inevitably go from one repo to another, after all...

Besides, wayland seems dicey, especially if any of this is true:

Peace be with you!
No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and mammon!

No one even doubts that Gnome, systemd or wayland is a real good. 🤣 The same good as secret CIA operations, or vaccines against Covid 19. 🤣 And whoever doubts this must be burned on fire.
