'Twas brillig, and Zhenyu Wang at 26/06/09 02:53 did gyre and gimble:

I think the fact that master has dropped XAA+EXA means that this cannot 
be a 2.7.2 release (it's already been tagged as last week too).

I think this point about the stable releases is party tied up with my 
question from the other day about the kernel side of the update:

For us, there are several problems with UXA support that make rolling 
out a 2.8 driver as an update to a stable distro totally impossible 
(it's already hard!). If the necessary kernel fixes to fix the major 
show stoppers (Xv breaking on some h/w, font corruption etc.) were 
placed into a 2.6.29.x release we can ship that and then potentially 
ship a 2.8 driver when it lands.
