X11R6.8.0 [Update 4]


By Yaba
Published: Sep 8 2004

X11R6.8.0 is released! Sources are available. Unfortunately I cannot find release notes anywere. I will update this as soon as I know more. All I have until now is a posting on Slashdot.

You all know what this means: Real transparency is no longer a dream on X desktops.

[Update 2004-09-09]

Obviously the release was pulled back after someone made an inofficial announcement too early. Nevertheless SuSE 9.1 users can already download binaries. If SuSE did not do much patching, maybe users of other distributions also can use the source rpm?

[Update 2004-09-09/2]

Sources are available on ftp://ftp.x.org/pub/X11R6.8.0/tars/, however the server is pretty busy. So please try a mirror:

I placed the release notes on my web server (please don't submit this link on /. ;-) ).

[Update 2004-09-09/3]

Emerge package for gentoo users: http://www.gentoo-portage.com/ebuild_download.php?e=x11-base/xorg-x11/xorg-x11-6.8.0.ebuild

[Update 2004-09-09/3]

All files are also available via eDonkey/overnet:

X11R6.8.0-src1.tar.gz
X11R6.8.0-src2.tar.gz
X11R6.8.0-src3.tar.gz
X11R6.8.0-src4.tar.gz
X11R6.8.0-src5.tar.gz
X11R6.8.0-src6.tar.gz
X11R6.8.0-src7.tar.gz

[Update 2004-09-12]

Finally there are official pages about the X11R6.8.0 release.

 xmms won't work

I also installed X11R6.8.0 successfully ("rpm -Uvh *rpm" works) and everything seems to be running just fine... except xmms.
It crashes badly on startup, reporting an X error.

Hi! I've Suse 9.1 too. but XMMS is working good. But my favorite plugin "On Screen Display" doesn't work. And new fonts are ugly, imho.
I'll downgrade X11.

I'm about to emerge this,
is is possible to make it do shadows straight off or do we need to wait a few weeks for someone to make them?

Well actually I have already installed it and after adding some little details to xorg.conf (XF86config-4 substitution) and running xcompmgr -Ccf I got nice shadows on every window and nice fading effects (some buggs). Its pretty easy to find how to do this.
Hope you try it and like it.
Take care, bye.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
