Looks like Xorg-7.5 is *very* soon.  Server-1.7.0 is released.  Mesa-7.6 
is released, giving initial support for r600 cards, but we'll really 
want 7.6.1 as soon as it's released.  As far as the official Xorg 
release into the book, we're waiting for for following packages to do 
final releases of these versions:

xf86-video-xgixp-1.8 (never has had a stable release)
