I am new to Ubuntu and still having trouble understanding how versions are selected for inclusion into a release. For example Xorg has updates that seem important since Sept. 5 2007. But apparently not important enough. Does anyone know why this version was chosen?
I can't believe stability is the reason as this Xorg is marked a
"This is a pre-release version of the X server from The X.Org Foundation.
It is not supported in any way."
