Is XFree86 still being developed? Most distributions nowadays with the exception of Debian use X.org leading most to think that Xfree86 is dead. Is it still "alive"?

One can only hope it died.

Reason #1 - Move vendor support to X.org and leave it there, rather than splintering it (Linux has enough issues with vendor support, this doesn't need to be another one)

Reason #2 - He deserves to get dropped for such a pinheaded idea with the licensing
