Since xorg-server-1.19.1 is no longer masked in /etc/portage/profiles/package.mask, is it now confirmed usable for ~arch users?

I ask because I had problems on my three Gentoo systems before, and had to mask it. I've also kept tabs on how other distros are faring with >=1.19.0, and not many are yet going with it, so before I try again I'm seeking a little feedback from Gentoo users. All advice is greatly appreciated.

I've been using 1.19 for months now with no issues.

Nvidia proprietary / Intel + Gnome 3.22 (with OpenRC)

qlop says I've been running 1.19 for a month, haven't noticed any problems with it and I use an r600 too. libinput 1.6 has caused some of my devices to stop working though, I p.masked that.

Been on 1.19.1 since late January here too, and the only issue I've discovered is related to 'imlib2_grab' which grabs somewhat darker images than usual (depending on the part of the screen, the image may be completely black, only almost completely black, or nearly normal).

While the development of said piece of software ended over 10 years ago though, I'm sure someone could probably come up with a fix at least somewhat easily. I for sure haven't (yet).

Also using the proprietary nvidia-drivers here, with OpenRC and eudev.

Thanks much, everyone. Strangely, I already had 1.19.1. Must have forgotten I unmasked it :oops:
