Hey all,

X.Org 7.3's release is about to happen in the next few days/weeks. For 
that reason I've built the latest xorg-server snapshot which is at 
version and most of the drivers and newly introduced packages.

A lot has changed, primarily in the area of driver ABI. For example 
nvidia is broken, it does build but xorg-server rejects it when starting 
up with an API mismatch error. Forcing it leads to hardlocks. I am using 
xf86-video-nv for now but this issue needs to be addressed.

I have no idea how well fglrx & unichrome-dri plays with the new server. 
So I'd like to hear about it.

Anyone wanting to take part in testing, should add this repo:


The PKGBUILs will soon be available with the same URL, just need to 
clean them up a bit.
