This section lists current plans for removal of obsolete or deprecated components in the X.Org releases. As our releases are open source, users who continue to require these can find the source in previous releases and continue to use these, but the X.Org Foundation and its volunteers have decided the burden of continued maintenance and distribution in the core X11 releases outweighs the benefits of doing so. In some cases, this is simply because no one has volunteered to do continued maintenance, so if software is listed here that you need, you can contact email@example.com to volunteer to take over maintainership, either inside or outside of the Xorg release process.
The DPS software is included and built by default (except as noted in README.dps) in the X.Org X11R6.8 release series. The software will be included, but not built unless specifically configured by the builder, in the X.Org X11R6.9 release series. At this time, X.Org does not plan to include any of the DPS software in X11R7.0 or later releases. For more information, see xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/doc/README.dps in the X.Org source release.
