Apple Releases X11 for Mac OS X -- Leveraging the Unix core of Mac OS X, Apple has made available a public beta of X11 for Mac OS X, an environment that enables X11 applications to run within Mac OS X and makes it easier to port X11 applications to the Mac. The X11 package includes display server software, client libraries, and developer toolkits; an optional X11 Software Developer Kit for Mac OS X is also available. The public beta is available now as a free 41.5 MB download; the SDK is a 3.8 MB download. [JLC]
