6.8.2 RC2

I’m pleased to announce that 6.8.2 RC2 works with Gentoo on x86, ppc (Pegasos) and sparc. That’s all I’ve got.

Xorg 6.8.0-r4 hit stable last night on sparc, x86 and mips. I’m hoping it does the same on amd64 before our 2005.0 release snapshot, but there’s some serious time crunch. I’m generally pretty pleased with how it turned out.

The next step of the migration will probably be /usr/X11R6/bin -> /usr/bin and /usr/X11R6/include -> /usr/include/X11 to finish things off, but I don’t expect it will happen until 6.8.2. It will definitely be nice to just have /usr/X11R6 -> /usr. First, however, I need to fix my highly specific migration function to be more robust and generalizable to anything. Actually, 6.8.1.90x’s might be a good opportunity to work on this, so 6.8.2 could also signify the lack of anything in /usr/X11R6.
