xorg still has a couple of weird bugs, like my led light for numlock,caps lock etc dont turn on/off when hitting the keys, but they do when I use the KDE applet keyboard status.

i dont understand - the new xorg works or doesent work with nvidia? because for now i pinned the version of xorg because it was trying to remove nvidia-glx. should i install the new xorg and install the 100.14.19 driver?

works just fine with the nvidia driver, not the nvidia-glx i.e. the debian way of installing nvidia.

If you prefer to do it the proper Debian Way, I would wait. And the new xorg still has a couple of bugs.

You see what the changes are by looking at http://packages.debian.org/changelog....3+2/changelog . The list is quite long.
