New AMD64 Testing Snapshot Contains Latest Xorg

The latest testing snapshot for 9.0 is now available in various formats from the FTP server. Some notes on this snapshot:

  • There was a failure on the i386 build server earlier this week, meaning there isn’t a 32 bit snapshot for this round of testing. The next testing snapshot will be available in both 32 and 64 bit versions in about 2 weeks.
  • This is the first snapshot to contain the latest developments from the FreeBSD Xorg porting team. miwi@‘s notes on the state of this testing version of Xorg are here. All future snapshots will contain the testing version of Xorg, allowing PC-BSD testers to assist the porters in finding bugs so that they can be fixed and to help speed up the porting process.
  • This snapshot also contains the new AppCafe. If no apps appear, wait a day or so as Kris is busy generating PBIs.

As always, let us know if you come across any bugs, either as a comment here or as a posting on the testing mailing list. The Handbook contains some instructions on becoming a tester.
