From Fedora Project Wiki

Historically Fedora has not updated the X server in ABI-incompatible ways within a single release stream. Starting with F21, we are moving to a model more like the kernel update process, where stable server releases will turn into stack backports to existing Fedora releases. This has implications for testing and external repositories; this page is an attempt to document the process.

Current versions and update schedule

  • Rawhide: 1.16.2
  • Fedora 21: 1.16.1 (1.16.2 in testing)

Rawhide will stay on 1.16.x until F21 is released, and then move to the 1.17.x stream.

The Package-x-generic-16.pngxorg-x11-drv-modesetting driver has been folded into the server; the separate driver package should be retired.
