This release works with udev for input hotplugging and supports
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/*.conf as a replacement for the hal .fdi files. After
upgrading to this release, configuration for input devices in hal is ignored.
Documentation about this change can be found on:
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xorg#xorg.conf.d_.28Xorg_1.8.29 Nvidia-173xx
and -96xx drivers currently don't support the new Xorg release. We recommend
using the xf86-video-nouveau driver package for now.
