I just got a chance to give 2.6.2 a try (I didn't have any time to try the beta).  I noticed a change from 2.6.1.  

I have wm_focus_on_new_window set to 1 in the preferences.  With 2.6.1 and earlier, when using nedit (built via fink using openmotif), new windows were created on top and given focus.  With 2.6.2, when using nedit, new windows are created on top, but do NOT get focus.  They must now be manually clicked upon to get focus (ie, focus stays with the window that previously had focus in X11).

So far, I have only noticed this change with nedit.

FYI, I'm running Snow Leopard 10.6.7

> XQuartz 2.6.2 has been released with only a few minor changes since the 2.6.2 beta a couple weeks ago.  With this release, XQuartz moves from the 1.9.x server branch to the 1.10 branch including fixes for an xrdb startup race (initial xterms not getting ~/.Xresources), some pasteboard proxy fixes, and a possible crash/corruption.  Additionally, this release brings in the new quartz-wm-1.2.0 which has had its WM hint/notification path completely rewritten to be much more reliable and expandable.
