Some status rambling for those interested.
I'm aware 7.6 is out. However, 7.6 has started to depend on xcb, which would force bloat both on the base and the Xorg extension.
Resistance is not futile just yet though. I may be able to build 7.6 with the xcb-needing components being the last version that didn't need it; and if that's not the case, the next update will be 7.5-2, being somewhere between 7.5 and 7.6, like 7.4-2 was between 7.4 and 7.5.
It saddens me that by 7.7, about a year forward I guess, it will be much more difficult to avoid that. What we'll do then I have no idea yet; maybe we'll assimilate, maybe stay on older Xorg.
Finally, none of this is happening very soon, there's no urgent need for a Xorg update, so it will come when it's ready.
