Question Fedora Rawhide, new Xorg release, 260.26, x86_64

Fedora Rawhide just dropped a new Xorg release that called itself xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.9.99.1-1.20101201, which kicked up the various ABI levels a notch and ended up incompatible with the 260.19.26 driver (even feeding it a -ignoreABI produced no joy).

Does anybody from NVidia have a *rough* idea when they'll drop a release/beta that supports the upcoming Xorg 1.10? Yes, I *know* it's a moving target, and I can easily tell 'yum' to ignore xorg-x11-* updates and stay on 260.19.26 - I'm just wondering if it's "a few weeks out" or "don't bother checking before March".

(for the record, 260.19.26 is running fine on a 2.6.37-rc4-mmotm1202 kernel, G98M [Quadro NVS 160M]).

I'm not from Nvidia but I do know the answer, there will be no official support till the new Xorg ABI is finalized.


P.S I have decided to use nouveau in rawhide till the ABI is finalized.
