+# X.Org Foundation Releases X11R7.1
+
+
+### First Modular Source Code Roll-up Release of the X Window System
+
+_Brookline, Massachusetts, May 22 2006._ Five months after release of X11R7.0, the modularized and autotooled release of the MIT ("X") Licensed X Window System source code, the X.Org Foundation has issued its first modular roll-up release.
+
+X11R7.1 supports Linux, Solaris, and BSD systems. It includes important new server and driver features for embedded systems, 64 bit platforms, enhanced operating system support, and accelerated indirect GLX support. It most importantly demonstrates to developers and industry immediate benefits of modularization.
+
+The full source code is free and available from ftp.X.Org and [[Mirrors|Mirrors]] worldwide. For a complete list of features in the new release and the contributors, please visit: [[http://ftp.x.org/pub/X11R7.1/|http://ftp.x.org/pub/X11R7.1/]].
+
+The X Window System is distributed under the MIT ("X") License by the X.Org Foundation LLC. All X Window System Releases are the work of volunteer contributors.
+
+All X11R7.0 derivative ("modularized") releases divide the source code into logically distinct modules, separately developed, built, and maintained by the community of X.Org developers. This concentrates and accelerates development time, supporting continuous modification, testing, and publication of each module.The new modular format offers focused development, and rapid and independent updates and distribution of tested modular components as they are ready, freed from the biennial maintenance release timetable. These changes in source code management, giving openness and transparency to the source code base and employing current technology, invite a new generation of developers to contribute, building on the long tradition of the X Window System.
+
+Twice yearly, roll-up releases collect and publish a new reference source code version. X11R7.1 is the first of these regular releases, demonstrating the success of the new development environment. The last monolithic tree released, X11R6.9.0, will continue to be be supported with security patches, as are all past X.Org Foundation releases, while new feature development is concentrated on the X11R7.* modular code base.
+
+Membership is free and open to contributors. Sponsorship is encouraged to support the global activities of the X.Org Foundation. Current X.Org Sponsors include Sun Microsystems, HP, IBM, StarNet Communications, AttachmateWRQ, Hummingbird, and Integrated Computer Solutions Incorporated [ICS].* Information concerning organization, activities, and mailing lists can be found at [[http://www.X.Org|http://www.X.Org]].
+
+In continuous use for over 20 years, the X Window System provides the only standard platform-independent networked graphical window system bridging the heterogeneous platforms in today's enterprise: from network servers to desktops, thin clients, laptops, embedded systems, and hand-helds, independent of operating system and hardware.
