Xquartz 2.2.3 released

Posted on June 26, 2008 by Juan

I was trying to upgrade wine within MacPorts when I realized I had forgotten to upgrade Xquartz after my upgrade to MacOS 10.5.3 on my Mac Pro. So I checked, Xquartz has been upgraded to version 2.2.3. Since version 2.2.1 (which I talked about in my blog here).

  • Upgraded the freetype library to version 2.3.6, which fixes “A bunch of potential security problems have been found [and fixed in this release”
  • Upgraded to pixman library to version 0.11.4.
  • Xquartz fixes from xorg-server-1.3.0-apple21, the key fix being support for monitor hotplugging, although several security fixes also occurred.

Again, if you upgrade MacOS (say to version 10.5.4, which is supposed to be released soon in order to support iPhone G3 and MobileMe), you will likely need to reinstall Xquartz (unless Apple has upgraded their X11 installation to match Xquartz).
