Thanks for the hints so far!

Draft version2:


<h2>Xorg 7.3 hits testing</h2>

Hello all,

the new X.org will be pushed the [testing] repository in the next few 
hours. xorg-server 1.4 comes with many core changes such as:

* a stable release of xf86-video-intel
* randr 1.2
* xorg.conf becomes <b>partially</b> obsolete
* an updated ABI for drivers

The ABI change breaks 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.
