[Xquartz-dev] 1.3.0-apple10 and pixman

As many of you know, we've been stuck on the 1.3 branch for a while
now while x.org has been working on 1.4 as their stable version.
There are a few technical reasons for this... mostly focused on bugs
having to do with the input side of things.
I've looked into those bugs enough to know that they're not going to
be simple fixes, so I decided to try integrating just some of the 1.4
changes into 1.3. Specifically, I've just committed a series of
changes to git that bring the xorg-server-1.3-apple fb and render code
up to the same version in xorg-server-1.4-apple. This code was
heavily refactored between 1.3 and 1.4 and much of it is now shared
with cairo in the pixman library. Consequently, I expect that we will
see a big increase in stability with 1.3.0-apple10 over apple9, but I
haven't been able to give it a thorough testing yet. While I feel
confident about the code, I'm not going to release it in a package
until it's been in use for a while. I'm in the process of uploading a
binary to the downloads page and will send a note to x11-users when it
is done uploading.
I urge you all to please use it and report any issues... especially if
you've been able to readily encounter crashes in fb<Blah> functions.
