Re: Bug#9196: XFree86-3.1.2 still around?

6.3 was *less* stable than 6.1 as released.  It had security fixes and
new features, but needed some post-release patches too.

Not in the linux community it isn't.  Software built for other
distributions will be built on xfree86, not on 6.3...

Not sure what feature you're referring to, but there have been various
levels of xauth security in previous releases (back to x11r4)
already... and it's easier (ie. possible) to revoke host-based access,
which would be somewhat useful for games like that.  And there's still
no connection-level security...
