The version is in CVS is stale.
Right now, Mike updates during the build; maybe like Xft we need to
do likewise as a stopgap.
Needs release noting.
*** Bug 228 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
There are some problems with trying to incorporate the new Xcursor/Xft/Xrender
into the tree due to the fact that imake does not support 3 digit .so versions,
and these new libraries use 3 digit library versions.
We had a discussion on #xwin today about this, and I believe we've come to
a concensus of what we should do. I will be posting an email to the mailing
list tomorrow about this to elicit feedback, just to ensure that everyone
is in agreement with how we should proceed, and any problems can be discussed
and ironed out first.
Feel free to reassign this to me if you like.
Updated to 0.8.3 (with large parts of 0.8.4).
Just curious about what parts of 0.8.4 were unacceptable, because I've updated
Red Hat Xrender to 0.8.4, and if there are known bugs, I'd like to fix them
or back out changes.
Just to clarify, I mean "back out changes" meaning in Red Hat xft packaging, not
All of the code has been taken. I don't remember what the diffs were other than
it was irrelevant.
