Historically Fedora has not updated the X server in ABI-incompatible ways within a single release stream. Starting with F21, we are moving to a model more like the kernel update process, where stable server releases will turn into stack backports to existing Fedora releases. This has implications for testing and external repositories; this page is an attempt to document the process.
Current versions and update schedule
- Rawhide: 1.16.2
- Fedora 21: 1.16.1 (1.16.2 in testing)
Rawhide will stay on 1.16.x until F21 is released, and then move to the 1.17.x stream.
