Major X Updates

Pat has pushed major XOrg updates today and this is the biggest update since some time ago. The XOrg is now upgraded to 1.15.2 and Mesa is upgraded to 10.1.5. Most of the proprietary drivers already have support for this version, so grab the latest version of your proprietary driver before upgrading to this version if you are using NVidia/ATI and use the proprietary driver.

  • lxc upgraded to 1.0.5
  • automake upgraded to 1.14.1
  • llvm upgraded to 3.4.2
  • calligra upgraded to 2.8.5
  • lesstif removed and replaced by motif
  • tetex rebuilt against new motif
  • ddd rebuilt against new motif
  • xpdf upgraded to 3.0.4
