The updates available on this site are not official Apple releases. They are a convenient way for users to stay up to date with progress made in the open source community (in which Apple is participating). Official Apple releases will come from Apple (most likely through OS and Security Updates via Software Update). These updates will likely incorporate many of the changes made in our releases when and if Apple deems them appropriate.

Binary versions of Xquartz are released periodically as fixes are being made. These are released primarily for testing out bug fixes or getting generating extra logging from users experiencing bugs. If you are uncomfortable using beta software or are unaffected by the fixed bugs, then please refrain from installing these binaries and just install the latest X11 package (above).
If you don't mind using beta software and would like to stay current with development, then your best bet is to install the latest package (which includes fixes outside of just xorg-server) then install the latest Xquartz binary.
Source code and a binary of Xquartz are available at http://xquartz.macosforge.org/downloads gith gpg signatures and md5 checksums. See our developer info page for more information on compilation or follow these instructions (in Terminal.app) to install the binary:
bunzip2 Xquartz-<version>.bz2 sudo install -b Xquartz-<version> /usr/X11/bin/Xquartz
As of 2.3.0-rc1, the server bits are actually located in the bundle. /usr/X11/bin/Xquartz is just a stub that "does the right thing" to start the server. You will not be able to use any of the Xquartz binaries from previous releases with this release, and visa-versa. That is why I haven't made an updated binary drop for a while. From now on, you'll need to grab X11-1.4.0-appleXX.bz2 and drop it over /Applications/Utilities/X11.app/Contents/MacOS/X11 rather than updating /usr/X11/bin/Xquartz:
bunzip2 X11-<version>.bz2 sudo install -b X11-<version> /Applications/Utilities/X11.app/Contents/MacOS/X11
