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.
