XFree86 server XF86_W32 expires Aug 31

Post by Ed Strauc » Tue, 27 Aug 1996 04:00:00



I'm using the XF86_W32 server from the XFree86 3.1.2E patch.
It expires on Aug 31.  I just downloaded this server from
the ftp.xfree86.org site, but this version still expires on
Aug 31.  So... will there be a  newer version within the next
5 days?

Why is this server expiring?  I am something of a neophyte and haven't
followed along, sorry.

Because the nice guys who write these things don't want multiple versions
to maintain, even less beta versions.
OK, the overlap was tight this time (3.1.2E expiring sept 1, 3.1.2F out aug.27),
but they held their promise.

Thanks to the entire team for the great work !

On this side of the world, we didn't see 3.1.2F until the morning of
Thursday 29 August!  I still can't get the S3 server to run.
