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 [the Xorg wiki article][1].

Nvidia-173xx and -96xx drivers currently don't support the new Xorg release. We
recommend using the xf86-video-nouveau driver package for now.
