Just as we come to an end of year 2017, we see release of X.Org Server 1.19.6 with over two dozen fixes back-ported from the 1.20 master branch.
In a mailing list announcement, Adam Jackson of Red Hat revealed that he is planning to carry out at least one more 1.19.x point release in 2018, which we believe could happen early next year followed by release of xorg-server 1.20.
The X.Org Server 1.19.6 doesn’t come with major changes, but features some GLX fixes, an XWayland fix, some minor RandR work, and other fixes.
The fixes are listed below:
