Release 3 of the X window system is now being shipped from MIT.

For those of you not familiar with X, X is a portable network
transparent window system for bitmap display terminals that runs under
Berkeley Unix.  X runs on DEC VS-100, VS1, VS2 and VS2/GPX displays;
also in this release is preliminary support for Sun workstations; our
thanks to Dave Rosenthal of Sun Microsystems for the Sun port.  The MIT
distribution distribution includes code for the VS100, VS1, VS2 and Sun
workstations; device dependent VAXstation 2/GPX binaries come with the
Ultrix-32W product and are not available from MIT.  This distribution
includes the device independent code for X and utilities developed
at MIT and a number of utilities developed elsewhere.  Our thanks to
Digital for contributing the Ultrix window manager.  Client programs
include a terminal emulator (~Vt102 and Tek4010), imagen previewer,
DVI previewer, clock, load monitor, several window managers, 
window dumpe/undump, bitmap editor, demo programs and a few utilities
of various sorts.

IBM RT/PC code is in the works and should be available roughly
simultaneously as 4.2A from IBM.  X DOES NOT RUN ON AIX (the System V
based product).  Other ports are in progress for several other
manufacturer's displays.

The cost is $100 and a copy of a Berkeley 4.2 source license.  If you
have no urgent need for a distribution, X will come on the 4.3BSD
tape as user contributed software.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
