FreeBSD Xorg Team Looking for Testers

The FreeBSD Xorg team is looking for testers for the upcoming 7.5.1 version of Xorg. If you have a test system and are interested in testing this release of xorg, you’ll find the instructions here. From the original message:

The Xorg T(m)eam is happy to announce the next round of Xorg fun! The X-Server has been patched to the latest 1.7.X series, drivers and fonts have been updated to the latest versions, but unfortunately we are not able to update libGL, drm and xorg-server to a higher version because FreeBSD doesn’t support GEM/KSE (yet), but it looks good for now, as kib@ is working on that, so we hope the future will be better for us. This update includes some components from Xorg 7.6 with a lot of improvements, and it seems that the performance is much better than the old version. We are calling the update xorg 7.5.1.

We hope you will enjoy the new stuff and give us a lot of feedback. We will start an exp-run tonight and depending on how much feedback we get, we plan to commit this update by the first weekend of March.
