    Phoronix: Going Indepth With Wayland Sub-Surfaces

    A few days back I wrote about sub-surfaces coming to Wayland's protocol after being a Weston-only feature for several months. For those curious about this Wayland feature, developer behind the code has written about this new feature at length...

        Do anyone still needs the explanation on that bit, or can we just skip that silliness?

          IIUC sub-surfaces might be able to help remote desktop scenarios. Once clipping is supported, sub-surfaces could be used for 'viewports', where the content is more or less static.

          For example a text editor could put the text area on a sub-surface, and then scrolling would become much smoother and less cpu-intensive since instead of passing big frame delta 60 times per second only the relative position of the internal window would have to be transmitted.

                The wl_shell interface doesn't give ways to minimize.

                It is about to be replaced by xdg_shell (written by Gnome devs), which has ways to minimize.

                  I don't get it... We all know that minimizing is a relict from the past! - the Gnome desktop has long depreciated this heretic feature. Nobody complains about it missing today...
