Xorg-server 1.5RC6 (126.96.36.1996) enters tesing. This version of xorg-server includes input hotplugging using hal, better EXA support and less memory usage. Note that this version requires an upgrade of all videodrivers. All videodrivers shipped with X.Org have been rebuilt to reflect this change. Nvidia drivers don't seem to need a rebuild, while AMD's catalyst drivers don't support the new X.Org version. Fglrx users should not upgrade to this version. Please give this version of X.Org an extensive test run and report bugs.

You will be able to meet the following Archers this year: * Andreas Radke (andyrtr) * Christoph Neuroth (delmonico) * Gerhard Brauer (gerbra) * Jan de Groot (jgc) * Jens Adam (byte/jra) * Pierre Schmitz (pierre) * Thomas Bächler (brain0) For more information, visit http://www.froscon.org
Packages for eclipse 3.4-3 and eclipse-cdt 5.0.0-2 will appear shortly in extra. We've switched to using the eclipse.org binary distributions for optimal stability and compatibility. It appeared that installing the binary distributions in /opt/eclipse was required; however, we have since determined that everything works fine with eclipse in /usr/share. Eclipse will stay in /usr/share. Enjoy!
