Draft of the news item, comments please! :)
<h2>Xorg 7.3 hits testing</h2>
the new X.org will be pushed to testing in the next few hours.
xorg-server 1.4 comes with many core changes such as:
* stable releases of xf86-video-intel
* randr 1.2
* xorg.conf becomes <b>partially</b> obsolete
* an updated ABI for drivers
The latter does break Nvidia's legacy drivers. So everyone using
nvidia-96xx or nvidia-71xx should either wait until Nvidia fixes the
issue or use xf86-video-nv in the meantime.
As usual feel free to file bugs for all issues you can find.
