New Xorg has Xinput 2.2, Mesa 8.0 and many major library updates.
Expect some bugs and broken packages. Most recent Xorg stuff is used in
Fedora RawHide for a while where fixes can be found.
Most noticeable changes will be:
- Mesa 8.0 drops 3D support for some chips. These
packages are gone now: unichrome-dri, mach64-dri, mga-dri, r128-dri,
savage-dri, sis-dri, tdfx-dri
- I couldn't find patches to get Xorg 1.12 support in
xf86-video-sisemedia and xf86-video-xgi. Both should be of very low
interest (not included in FC at all). We might drop them if no fix
can be found.
- State of closed drivers: Nvidia has a beta pkg out with Xorg 1.12
support. Let's pray it's already in usable state. Catalyst (AUR)
users will stay in the dark as on every major Xorg release for a
