XFree86-3.3 is now available!
Most binary distributions are in place and the mirrors are quickly picking
up the files. Please be patient when trying to download the files and please
check the mirrors closest to you first.
If your XFree86-3.2A servers are about
to expire, please check the next section about extending the expiration date.
Highlights of the new release include
Check the XFree86-3.3 documentation for more
- Support for Matrox Mystique
- Support for all current S3 chipsets
- Support for high and true color on many ET4000/W32 cards
- Improved speed for many of the drivers, using XAA
- All known Xlib/Xt vulnerabilities are closed
Extending the Expiry Date of XFree86-3.2A
Since XFree86-3.3 could only be released a few days before XFree86-3.2A
expires we want to make it easier for those in need of an updated server.
Add the following command line option when starting the servers of
XFree86-3.2A and the expiry time will be extended another 30 days until
July 15th, 1997.
-extendExpiry 30 0a8d20244e3c8fcb
This should give you enough time to get and install XFree86-3.3.
When starting the server with startx, use:
startx -- -extendExpiry 30 0a8d20244e3c8fcb
When starting the server from xdm, edit your /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers
file and change the :0 line to something like:
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X -extendExpiry 30 0a8d20244e3c8fcb
