Thanks to everyone for helping out with the 2.5.1 release.  We've got  
a bunch of bug fixes all over the place (currently 29 tickets closed  
in this milestone) as well as version bumps and changes for some key  
components.  Thanks to everyone for weathering the rough ride as we  
transitioned from an xtrans backed libX11 to an xcb backed libX11.  It  
looks like all those issues are worked out and patches are now  
upstream, so other distributions will benefit from our labor as well.

A ChangeLog of the most visible changes since 2.5.0 can be found here:

Direct downloads for Leopard and Snow Leopard can be found here:

or you can just "Check for updates" from the X11 menu (you'll need to  
be on the pre-release update feed, visit the ChangeLog above for info  
on that).

This looks to be a fairly solid release, but as always, if you find an  
issue, please report it:
