xfree86 4.2.0-0pre1v1 available at the X Strike Force



i386 .debs up right now, and the source is slowly trickling up there,
but will be there by the time most of you read this.

ERRATUM: xdm is broken (the greeter works but you cannot log in).  I
know it's broken.  I'm looking into it.  Please don't tell me it's
broken.  I already know.

   *** THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL RELEASE.  FEEDBACK SHOULD GO TO
   *** <debian-x@lists.debian.org>.  DO NOT FILE BUGS AGAINST THIS RELEASE WITH
   *** THE DEBIAN BUG TRACKING SYSTEM.  ANY SUCH REPORTS WILL BE CLOSED.
 .
   * First experimental releae.
 .
   * Thanks to ISHIKAWA Mutsumi for making this release possible.  His
     changelog entries are provided below.  For release to Debian unstable, all
     the experimental entries' changelogs need to be merged into one huge one.
 .
   * XXX: upstream specs Imakefiles still shipping XIE docs; cut that out
   * XXX: ensure that we don't ship the BUILD doc
   * XXX: ensure that we do ship the RELNOTES
 .
   * Client-side support for the PEX5 and XIE extensions has been dropped; this
     includes the xfonts-pex the extension libraries and headers in xlibs and
     xlibs-dev, and the xieperf client from xbase-clients.
   * New X protocol extensions: Xrandr ("X R and R": root window resizing and
     rotation extension) and XTrap (enables capture of server protocol and
     sythesis of core input events); this includes extension libraries and
     headers in xlibs and xlibs-dev, as well as sample clients in
     xbase-clients: xrandr, xtrapchar, xtrapin, xtrapinfo, xtrapout,
     xtrapproto, xtrapreset, and xtrapstats.
   * New font-encoding library and header files in xlibs and xlibs-dev.
   * New experimental protocol extension: XvMC (X video motion compensation);
     currently available only as a static extension library in xlibs-dev.  A
     static PIC version is also available in xlibs-pic.
   * New font encoding files for dec-special, ISO 8859-16, KSC 5601.1992, and
     TIS 620-2.
   * New font in the ClearlyU family: 12-point Devanagari
   * The internationalization support in Xlib has been modularized.
   * The Compose map for the mk_MK.UTF-8 locale has been dropped.
   * New symbols files for XKB: al, altwin, ar, ben, compose, czsk, dev, ge_la,
     ge_ru, guj, gur, ir, iu, la, level3, mm, mt, mt_us, nl, pl2, ru_yawerty,
     sapmi, se_FI, se_NO, se_SE, tj, tml, tr_f, us_group2, yu.
   * The lt_p symbols file for XKB has been dropped.
   * An s3 video driver module for the XFree86 X server has been added; it
     supports some pre-ViRGE S3 cards such as the Trio64.
   * The newport video driver module for the XFree86 X server now builds for
     more architectures.
   * New input driver modules for the XFree86 X server: calcomp, dmc, hyperpen,
     penmount.
   * There is a new extension to the mi (machine-independent) portion of the X
     server implementation: "layer", which currently hooks into the shadowfb
     support and is used by the RandR extension.
   * New utility: luit, a filter that can be run between an arbitrary
     application and a UTF-8 terminal emulator.  Now part of xutils.
   * There is now a DRI driver for Intel i830 chipsets (in xlibmesa3).
   * Tons of new manpages for the gl*() functions (in xlibmesa-dev).
   * xedit (in xbase-clients) now knows how to process LISP expressions.
     Phear.
 .
   * debian/README: allocate patch sequence numbers for Hitachi SuperH (sh)
     architecture(s)
   * debian/changelog{,.Debian.old}: entries from XFree86 4.0.1 through 4.0.3
     moved to the old changelog file
   * debian/control:
     - update xlibs's extended description to note that the PEX5 and XIE
       extension client libraries are no longer shipped or supported
     - xserver-common conflicts with xserver-{rage128,sis}; these obsolete
       packages expect outdated behavior regarding /etc/X11/Xserver.  This
       change smooths potato upgrades.  (Closes: #148937)
   * debian/copyright:
     - added ISHIKAWA Mutsumi to list of package authors
 .
   * debian/shell-lib.sh: update analyze_path() to list all contents of the
     parent directory when a file being searched for is not found; this is to
     help the dpkg maintainers troubleshoot the ever-elusive
     "missing-symlink-to-directory" problem
