XFree86 Release 4.4.0

The current XFree86 release is available here. This page is about our 4.4.0 release which was released in 2004.

Before Downloading

We highly recommend that the following three (3) pages be read before downloading this release:

for a general overview, licensing, developer information and where to download the source tarballs and patches;
Release Notes
for a summary of what this particular release contains;
Installation Notes
for information about what files to download for those wanting binary distributions, and how to install them depending upon your environment.

Getting 4.4.0

Once you have read the above documentation, binaries for XFree86 4.4.0 can be found on our ftp and http servers. For those who also desire the 4.4.0 source and source patches, they can be downloaded from our ftp server here.

Alternatively, the 4.4.0 source code can be obtained directly from our public CVS server under the release tag xf-4_4_0. Post-release fixes, those patches that were applied too late to be included in the 4.4.0. release, are on the branch called xf-4_4-branch.

Building XFree86 4.4.0 From Source

If instead you want to build XFree86 4.4.0 from source, instructions on how are in the Build document.

What distros carry it?

While you can always get it hot off the 'Net from us, our distro support page will tell you, what bleeding edge distros are carrying it too. We urge you to check it out and support those who support us. Personally I wish I could run them all; they each some really nice features and some very good people.
