When was it released
Authored by: kreesurgeon on Jan 08, '03 10:07:13AM

Looking at the source code on the apple site, I saw this "CONTENT="Fri, 26 Mar 1999 23:59:59 GMT" also there is no mention of the latest products in the meta tag i.e. Xserve etc. So has this been out for ages and they didn't tell anyone?

You're referring to the kosher X11 from to which Apple always has a link available. Apple's new X11 is the original modified by Apple to use the Quartz-wm and write default paths from the get-go. is the link to Apple's home-spun modification.

Uhhh.... I think it would be safe to assume that the web devs at Apple are reusing some html and not that they came out with this technology before the release of OS X (chicken before the egg syndrome). If you take a look at the Apple home page, you'll find a similar meta-tag: "CONTENT="Fri, 26 Mar 1999 23:59:59 GMT"

Don't read too much into it.

Well, if you look in, it says

XFree86 Version 4.2.1 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)
Release Date: 3 September 2002

BTW, if you are german and want your normal keyboard layout, you can simply do a
"sudo cp /System/Library/Keyboards/Deutsch.keymapping /System/Library/Keyboards/USA.keymapping".

International Keymappings
Authored by: iv on Jan 08, '03 02:40:35PM

I tried this with the Finnish key mapping (labeled Svenska.keymapping :-), and it caused more problems than solved - I could not type any option-cued characters, which are often needed with X11.

I noticed, that X11 says "Quitting XDarwin..." when it exits, so I tried to use defaults-entry copied from XDarwin plist to set the keyboard, but with no luck :-(.

So, if anyone can think of a better way to set international keys, please post!

You can try xmodmap ...

Use "xmodmap -pke > .xModmap" in your home-dir
(works only after starting X11)

You can the edit the file and adjust all to your needs ...

To use it, put something like "xmodmap .xmodmap" in your xinitrc.
