I was planning to give 4.2.99 a try, so this is good news for me. :)

Let's see what happens to my fonts this time...

I'm using XFree 4.2.1, and I was wondering: How difficult will upgrading be? Will anything have to be recompiled (except for X itself)? KDE? Terminal apps? GDM? I already have FreeType2 up and running, but I like using old fonts for my terminals... will I still have that?

You will only need to install X, if your fonts naff up however - you may need to re merge freetype and what not.

are there any special functions new or improved or are the x updates just bugfixes and so on? well.... i think if a new version of a wm comes out it can give me more functionality, but dont know whats special about x updates but driver compatibility for example

The new X supports transparent Mousecursors and Mouseshaddows. Looks realy cool. If you are already using XFree-4.2.99.xxx the new X will only bring you more stability (I think)

In related news, anyone know how to completely disallow that feature, it's SO annoying to look at IMHO.

edit /usr/X11/lib/X11/icons/index.theme (think thats right path) and change inherit=whatever to inherit=default.

Hi

Just emerged XFree-4.3, wondered what the new mouse pointers looked like, but, surprise surprise, they didn't change.

I thought those were the new default pointers, if it isn't so, what needs to be done?
