    Well I know apple doesn't fully make X11, but Appfresh has been detecting update, X11 is now at 2.1, Appfresh detected 2.1.4, I deleted it because I noticed it doesn't display the warning message when you close X11, now I see 2.1.1, I don't want to download it, should I? Or should I just stick to Apple's releases? Thanks a bunch!

    Download the latest version of X11 here. The Apple releases are not done via software update or any other mechanism in Leopard any more. Xquartz also fixes tons of bugs in X11.

    Ok, so I should trust this place? Will it eventually appear in like 10.5.3?

    It is just the open source project for X11 distribution that Apple uses in 10.5. They may include some version in a slightly modified form in 10.5.3.

    But yes it is trustworthy. An Apple developer contributes regularly.
