The third and final release candidate for the X.Org X Server 1.7 is now
available. Expect the final server release within a week, pending the state
of the blocker bugs.

The 1.7 branch is frozen, the only commits to go in before the release are
fixes for build errors or blocker bug fixes. Everything else will have to
wait for 1.7.1. If you find a build error or severe crash, report it now,
I'll likely cut the final on Friday or the weekend.

As with the previous RC we have fixes in a number of subsystems. 
A couple of small but important Xdmx fixes went in, briging it into a good
state. Most notably however are the patches to fix up XQuartz.

"For the first time in years, we actually have a usable XQuartz server built
from an authoritative X.Org release." - Jeremy Huddleston, XQuartz

Blocker bug list:
19470:  any X11 client can crash Xvfb
        [patch by airlied on xorg-devel]
23286: Memory leak caused by 100x100 glyphs
        [patch on master]
23298: Xserver crash when running x11perf -shmputxy10 test case
        [patch attached, waiting for comment]
23645: Crash uploading multiple glyphs
24011: Excessive enter/leave events
24094: CTRL-ALT-F1 doesn't switch to VT1 (provides garbage input to terminal instead)
24144: "Xephyr -parent window-id -screen XxY" fails entirely [patch on xorg-devel]
24187: Negative root window coordinates

For the ones with patches, please help with the review. For the others, feel
free to tackle them.
