I was experimenting with getting games to run and I noticed that the xserver in the 2.6.0 wrapper is a 1.13.x. The release XQuartz (2.7.6) is now on server 1.14.6, and i had to switch to it to avoid a GLX error. I also noticed that the release candidate for 2.7.7 is already on server 1.15.2.

Would it be a lot of work to make a 2.6.1 wrapper with an update to the X11 components?

yes, its a lot of work... every time I update X and Mesa and all that stuff, it causes a lot of issues.

I'm planning on looking into all the changes with 2.7.7 when its released and maybe trying out a new WineskinX11 build.

I was hoping the Mac Driver would be able to be a replacement and not need to worry about X11 that much... sadly, i don't think they want to add all the features in it that it needs... and I don't really think i have the time to try myself, then make all the changes Like i have for WineskinX11... Also, every game I've played, I haven't gotten any benefit from the Mac Driver either, so its been a bit of a let down for me.

The main benefit for the Mac driver for me is that it lets me switch easily (cmd-tab) between the application and normal OS X. I can never find the right key combination to swap and/or get in and out of fullscreen with the X11 driver, and I sometimes have to reboot entirely when the app hangs in fullscreen. Other that that I don't much care which one I use.

That and there are a few places where the X11 gives errors that the Mac driver seems to avoid. But few.

CMD+Q should always be able to force quit WineskinX11.

CMD+Tab should always toggle fullscreen.

Yes. But it doesn't always work like that.

Sometimes I CMD-Q, and then there is still the X11 window that overlaps everything. If I then CMD-Q again and hit Enter, it stops and I get my desktop back. CMD-Tab is hit and miss, often it does nothing if the application is hanging and eating too much CPU.

Well, XQuartz 2.7.7 is out now, but it doesn't fix my problems (maybe some but others persist). Not sure if it is a really big deal after all.
It also doesn't have updated Mesa. So if you want to have more bugs to swat, best wait for the next release ;).

Also, the times when the key combinations stop working is when my application hangs and starts overeating on CPU.

FYI, XQuartz 2.7.8rc3 just came out, and it has an updated Mesa at version 11.0.3.

I'm unsure how long it will take to get to a proper release, but it may finally make sense to start playing with it.

Looks like XQuartz 2.7.9 is on its way with a fix for an OpenGL glitch. Not sure if anyone has had that glitch, but it might be worth trying the new X to get rid of it.

Keep an eye on the release page at http://www.xquartz.o...ases/index.html for progress binaries.
