X.Org X11 6.8.2rc2 ( was released yesterday, and is now 
available for testing for Fedora Core users in rawhide.  This is 
the second release candidate of what will become 6.8.2 in the 
coming weeks.  The 6.8.x series is a stable bugfix only series 
which fixes bugs in 6.8.1 and contains no major new features.

If you have had any problems with 6.8.1 as shipped in Fedora Core
3, or 6.7.0 as shipped in Fedora Core 2, please upgrade to in rawhide and test it well to see if the problems you
may have experienced have been fixed now.  Please close any open 
bug reports in both Red Hat and X.Org bugzilla if you have filed 
a bug against X.Org and it is no longer present in the new RC2 

Fedora Core 3 and rawhide users are both encouraged to do this, 
as we will be releasing 6.8.2 as an update for FC3 once it is 

Additionally, if you experience any regressions or other new 
problems that did not occur in 6.8.1 or earlier, please report 
these problems directly to X.Org, via the X.Org bugzilla at 
freedesktop.org:  http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg" 
component.  This will ensure that all X.Org developers have 
a chance to see the bug report and possibly develop a 
solution for the final 6.8.2 release.

Thanks in advance for testing.
