== Description ==

xorg-server is the first release candidate for xorg-server-1.11.4.
Version 1.12 of xorg-server is in convergence, so changes landing in the
stable branch are starting to trickle down.  This release  contains fixes for
various crashes and other correctness issues fixed since the previous release.

== Known Issues ==

Most issues are now being tracked for convergence of the 1.12 server, but they
will be cherry picked into the 1.11 branch if a safe fix becomes available
before 1.12 ships.

* #11053: Buffer overflow in fbCopyArea()
  * Has a patch, ajax thinks the patch is wrong
* #17013: Issues when mising Xinerama and XCopyArea/Xdamage
  * Partial patch is available... still waiting on complete fix
* #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
* #29251: [from 1.8.x] server crash destroying GLX pixmaps
* #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)
* #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
