Default X.org 7.6 supports udev and modularized configuration

From http://www.h-online.com/open/news/it...n-1157824.html

Quote:
The X.org developers have released version X11R7.6 of their graphics system, which contains the X Server version 1.9.3. One of the innovations in 7.6 is that it uses udev for hardware detection and hot-plug notification; a HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) is no longer required.

This release contains some interesting features for all, indeed the above is only relevant on Linux.

AFAIK this is the first release to officially include XCB support, and to finally depreciate DGA.
