It's all about the license change. With the final release of XFree86 
4.4.0, XFree86 made some license changes that are not acceptable to most 
(if not all) of the open source community. Essentially, the current xorg 
release is the last release of the XFree86 4.4.0 branch before XFree86 
changed the license.
