Automatic Updates for Beta Versions

If you would like to receive automatic updates for beta versions in addition to release versions, please update to our beta SU feed by running the following command:

$ defaults write org.xquartz.X11 SUFeedURL


Another way to get a current X11 installation on your system is through MacPorts. This is currently tested and supported on Tiger and newer versions of macOS. Visit MacPorts to install it on your system. Once installed, run this command from to install the latest X11 server on your system:

$ sudo port -v install xorg-server

If you want to try a development version of the server, use “xorg-server-devel” instead of “xorg-server” in the command above.

If you want all of the client applications as well, run:

$ sudo port -v install xorg
