-//== KDE 4.x upgrade
-//KDE has been upgraded from the old 3.x series to the new 4.x one. This
-//is a major change, multiple parts of the Software Compilation has been
-//completely rewritten, and as a result, sometimes the old configuration
-//files are not parsed completely. So be warned, it's expected that you
-//need to re-configure a few of your favorite KDE applications before they

+== XOrg configuration file removal
+XOrg now uses udev to automatically detect your hardware when you start
+XOrg, so `/etc/X11/xorg.conf` is no longer necessary, you are
+recommended to remove it:
+# rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
+Instead, if you still want to manually fine-tune parts of your XOrg
+configuration, you can place a fragment file to the new
+`/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d` directory.  If you still keep the monolithic
+`xorg.conf`, and you have conflicting settings in the monolithic and the
+fragment files, the later ones have priority.
