RandR Support on XFree86 4.3

Submitted by newsagent on

Great news for those people using XFree86 on QNX. Keith Packard committed a new extension to XFree86, called RandR. XFree86 4.3 will have the ability to truly resize rotate, reflect and change the refresh rate of each screen of an X display on the fly.Coincidently, XFree86 4.3 is scheduled to release sometime around the next QNX release (6.2.1). XFree86 4.3 QNX support is in the works, and if all goes well, you should be able to see it when XFree86 4.3 and QNX 6.2.1 are released. Since XFree86 is open source, for those impatience, CVS can be found from http://www.xfree86.org/cvs/
