The third release candidate of XFree86 4.4 has been finalized. This
time separate pre-built binaries are available for Panther and
Jaguar. The binaries are located at
binaries for Jaguar are in Darwin-ppc-6.x and Panther are in
Darwin-ppc-7.x. The Jaguar binaries require Mac OS X 10.2.3 or newer.
(XFree86 will build on Mac OS X 10.2.0-10.2.2, but the user community
for these versions is so small we are not planning to provide the
separate binaries that would be necessary.)
There are no known bugs in this release. Both versions will
interoperate with Apple's X11. The Jaguar binaries will work with an
existing Beta install and similar for Panther and X11 1.0. Apple's
X11 is not required, however.
Mac OS X 10.1.x is planned for support in the final release of
XFree86 4.4.0 and the code does build successfully on 10.1.x.
Unfortunately there is an apparent issue with the thread safety of
Mac OS X 10.1.x's AppKit framework, which we still need to work
around. Thus 10.1.x binaries are not available for this release
