    Phoronix: Wayland 1.6 Is Under Planning For Release

    We haven't heard much talk lately about Wayland 1.6 but Pekka Paalanen is stepping up and is trying to begin organizing work towards the Wayland/Weston 1.6 release that's quickly due...

    Wonder what's up with Kristian Høgsberg, work exhaustion?

      Could you clarify ? Why has he lost interst - for technical or political reasons ?

      What do you mean by "othing" ? As far as we ahve been told, all major toolkits and libraries were or are about to be reworked for Wayland and Chrome /FF are also due for new, Wayland-compatible releases.

      So what is left ?

          Maybe the Wayland 1.6 will not so full of new features, but the Wayland project itself seems in good shape, look here:
          wayland-x11-arm-mali
          I don't know, but if that graphics are correct... there are very impressive! O_o

            Ban Mark45

            The statements that Mark45 made.. and I'm not going to repeat them here... are MORE than worthy of a perma-ban. If Phoronix wants to keep even a shred of credibility it needs to come down like a ton of bricks on "people" like that.

              Ten weeks is a mighty long vacation if you ask me. And if it was vacation, why not give people a notification on the mailing list? All I'm saying is seems like something's up.

                He's made some commits to Mesa recently:
                http://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mes...=H%C3%B8gsberg

                It looks like he's contributing code to get Intel's next generation of graphics processors to work well in Linux. It is possible that his focus has moved to not yet public projects at Intel.

                Other than bug fixes and refactoring of weston most of the recent wayland work has centered around libinput and xdg-shell. Most of this work has been handled by other contributors so, as somebody has mentioned, the project looks to still be in good health overall.

                  ? That's completely normal in Europe.

                  http://www.vpcalendar.net/average-va...y-country.html

                  Germany, France, Italy average 7-8 weeks of paid vacation, add unpaid / timebanked days to that.

                    Germany - 35 days <-- what? I literally don't know anybody that has more than 30 days of vacation, how can the average be that high? I have to talk to my boss

                      While true, Kristian lives in America, I believe.

                        Is there any news about dri3 and drivers switching over to it?

                        I think that has to be done before things like present and nuclear page flipping can be taken advantage of.

                          That only affects X11: Wayland can already take advantage of these.

                            I read your link and seems like Wayland uses less power than X11, at least for arm users. The link has even a graphic of Wayland power usage versus X11 power usage. Anyone knows if a notebook user could get advantage from this?

                              The lack-of-copies would help power efficiency and performance, I would think. But part of the power efficiency bump is that Wayland can properly take advantage of all of the decoder / encoder blocks on a given SOC whilst I don't believe X11 can, or is very limited in that regard at least.
