    Phoronix: Compiz Support For Multi-Pointer X

    In May we shared that Multi-Pointer X (or MPX for short) was entering the mainline X server. While it was merged to master that month, X Server 1.5 was already branched out and therefore it won't appear in X.Org 7.4, but it will appear in X Server 1.6 (X.Org 7.5) until next year. While it's now in the mainline branch, Peter Hutterer, the chief developer of MPX, hasn't stopped there...

    I'm very interested in this whole Mulit-Pointer X stuff and hopefully I can enjoy it in a few month/years without much manual configuration work

        I just posted this over at forum.compiz-fusion.org in the Core Dvelopment forum. Hopefully someone cares enough to do something with it!

        Like I said over there, with the Nvidia system-on-a-chip coming that has been proven to play Quake III and small enough for handheld devices, I see this announcement as a huge boon to Compiz if they (the Core dev's) decide to use it.

              I doubt it - ir was available already. There's a bunch of videos of wii remote + compiz.

                  Input Redirection ?

                  man, I hate acronyms!

                  Does IR mean Infra-Red in this context or Input Redirection? I thought the latter.
