X11 Release 7.0 Available

By Justin Mann on
Some exciting news for us Linux users, the next release of the X Window system is available after a very long incubation period. After going many years with little updates to a monolithic system, the 7.0 release of X11 converts the system to a modular format, making development and support easier in the future. Though there have been enhancements in the recent past, a modular X means much faster development, helping bring more to the Linux desktop as well as other software suites such as the Solaris operating system. The 7.1 release is already planned for mid 2006 to bring roll up updates. Future development will be primarily on this new modular system rather than the old, but still supported, monolithic one.
