The xorg stack has been switched to use what has been dubbed new xorg in
CURRENT.  This means new xserver, new MESA (dri/libGL) stack and in some
cases new versions.
If you want to remain with the old stack, add WITHOUT_NEW_XORG= to
UPDATING contains instructions for updating.
To get VT switching when using KMS drivers (ATI, Intel) please use
newcons: https://wiki.freebsd.org/Newcons or if that is not possible,
force the use of the vesa driver for xorg.

Please send reports of successes, failures and/or comments to
x11 at freebsd.org.  Remember to include any relevant information, such as
xorg logs (Xorg.log.0), dmesg, graphics card model and ports versions
with your report.

Please test this as much as possible!
