4:55 PM - xorg7 Integration Started

Work has started to integrate xorg 7.3 into mports. This will destabilize mports while the switchover is in progress, but the tree was tagged for the 0.1.1 release just before work began. If you need a stable mports tree, use the MPORTS_0_1_1_RELEASE tag.

The work should take about 2 weeks, after which xorg should be build-able from ports again. It will take additional time to make sure that the toolkits and window managers all work properly under xorg7.

This transition is inconvenient, but it is important to get MidnightBSD onto the 7 series. Future updates will be much simpler, and we gain a great number of new features with this update alone.
