Xorg-7.4 Patchlevel Updates

Reported by: dnicholson@… Owned by: DJ Lucas
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords: xorg modular


In between major Xorg releases (e.g., Xorg-7.1 -> Xorg-7.2), individual packages are updated and released. While updates in the major and minor version of the packages (x and y in package-x.y.z) has proven to be unstable, patchlevel upgrades (z in package-x.y.z) add security and bug fixes that would be beneficial to the book. The process is described more in depth here:

The idea is that a list of patchlevel updates in between major Xorg releases can be maintained here so the editors can update individual packages as time and testing sees fit.

First set of updates done pre-BLFS-6.2.0. See r6458 for details.

comment:2 by dnicholson@…, 16 years ago

Some packages are receiving manpage updates: bitmap-1.0.3 editres-1.0.3 xrdb-1.0.3

comment:3 by dnicholson@…, 16 years ago

xsetpointer-1.0.1 needs inputproto-1.4+, which is an Xorg-7.2 update. Don't use this version of xsetpointer until Xorg-7.2.

Changing milestone primarily because this is the only ticket that has not been assigned a milestone.

comment:6 by dnicholson@…, 16 years ago

I added a set of updates about a month ago in r6893. The note above about xsetpointer still stands. The necessary inputproto changes won't go in until Xorg-7.3.

Also, libXfont-1.2.9 isn't being used. The developer realized that it added a new large new feature and immediately re-released it as 1.3.0. So, we'll stick with 1.2.8 until Xorg-7.3.

Updates since r6893: xhost-1.0.2, ico-1.0.2, setxkbmap-1.0.4, iceauth-1.0.2, libX11-1.1.3.

xclock-1.0.3, xmodmap-1.0.3, xgamma-1.0.2

Milestone: 6.3future

As I mentioned on the list a few weeks back, I'm punting these updates. They can be applied later, or rolled into an Xorg-7.3/7.4 update. I've put specific security issues in #2513.
