The X.org X server 1.8.0 is now available. It's pretty close to RC2,
with some XQuartz and Cygwin/X changes, and some various input cleanups.

One other notable change since RC3 is that udev is now the default input
device autoconfiguration mechanism where available, and the server
installs a 10-evdev.conf file to make sure you get input devices after
installing the new server.
