I hear that in a week or so Novell will be releasing the source code to XGL for X11 7.0. Will it be possible to have XGL available in Extras for FC5? I'm guessing it's one of those new X11 modules that v7.0 is all about. But I know little about XGL and would like to test it out to know more. It's going to be in NLD 10 in a few months.

There are a lot of X related "goodies" that are up and coming in the
X development world, including technologies being developed by Red Hat,
Novell, Sun, and various others in the community.  The current plan for
Fedora Core 5, is to ship X11R7.0 as the official X implementation,
including the Xorg X server.

The various developmental/experimental technologies being developed
by the above parties will most likely be available to Fedora users in
one form or another over time, however everything is quite experimental
at the current point in time to make any solid speculation for the
inclusion of other components into Fedora Core 5 at this time.

Either way, anything not included in Core, will very likely either
end up in Fedora Extras, or rpm packaged in some other experimental
repository, making it available for Fedora users to play with.

Keep in mind, both end users and developers alike are equally
anticipating the various new eye-candy technologies, and the X.Org
community is pretty close knit.  As such, you can expect that
there'll be lots of fun stuff to play with in the not distant
future.  ;o)

As various bits and pieces become less experimental, and more ready
for people to play with, myself or someone else will likely post more
information on this list and/or on the developmental X.Org and/or
Fedora IRC channels.

For now though, patience is a virtue.  ;o)
