== Description ==

This is the first release candidate for xorg-server 1.11.3 and contains
fixes for various crashes and correctness issues fixed since the previous

Sorry for this being a few days late.  Blame Thanksgiving ;)

== Known Issues ==

Important issues are listed in the 1.11 tracker bug:

* #17013: Issues when mising Xinerama and XCopyArea/Xdamage
  * Partial patch is available... still waiting on complete fix
* #29251: [from 1.8.x] server crash destroying GLX pixmaps
* #39580: [from 1.9.x] crash in GLX when resizing a window
* #39949: [from 1.9.x] RandR panning & scaling don't work
* #41124: [from 1.9.x] Another crash in GLX/DRI2 when resizing a window

Soime additional known issues from the 1.12 tracker would be considered for
1.11 if a fix becomes available:

* #11053: Buffer overflow in fbCopyArea()
  * Has a patch, ajax thinks the patch is wrong
* #23938: [from 1.6.x] keys occasionally get stuck
* #24094: CTRL-ALT-F1 doesn't switch to VT1 (provides garbage input to terminal instead)
  * XKB weirdness.  This looks diagnosed, so let's get a patch tested.
* #27428: xrandr events delayed until a key is pressed
* #27804: Enter/Leave event woes with multiple master devices
* #31501: [from 1.8.x] crash accessing font info with xfs in fontpath
* #32765: [from 1.8.x] Xephyr segfaults on 24bpp hosts
  * A possible fix is discussed, but Keith didn't like it.
* #39094: WaitFor does not handle EIO (causes 100% cpu load)
