They are already part of EGL 1.5. There are wayland platform extensions in the upstream spec.
Isn't EGL good enough?
The PPA also didn't have the up to date version of Gnome at that time. It took some time for them to catch up.
I think every Linux distro will eventually use systemd. It's just to hard to stay in a timebubble as a distro in the Linux world with its interdependencies.
Who knows maybe even GNU/Hurd and...
Since Ubuntu didn't ship with Gnome 3.10 in 13.10 and not with Gnome 3.12 in 14.04 despite both being released after Gnome was released, it's unlikely that you'll see Gnome 3.14 in Ubuntu 14.10.
Electronic Arts and Blizzard, too. Blizzard isn't really known for pushing the graphics envelope, though.
It could be that it will only be available on DX11 hardware anyway. Kind of like DirectX 12 (NVIDIA will support it on every DX11 GPU they said) or Mantle (there are reports that DX11 hardware...
Life has all the potential to be a great train-wreck.
What I'd like to see is being able to still switch to a VT if the PC locks up. Often the PC still response to commands if you have a SSH session open, but nouveau noped out. Linux should have a...
No it doesn't. Nouveau provides it's own free Firmware for most cards. On some newer cards it might not be perfect. For these you can use an extracted firmware and start with...
AMDs open source drivers still require closed source microcode and firmware...If you want to be truly open you have to use an older NVIDIA card with nouveau.
This is making my wallet nervous!:D
It's easiest to use voglperf from Valve.
I just run voglperfrun64. It creates a local webserver. Open browser "http://127.0.0.1:8081". In the...
It took them 1 day to ship 4.4... Tiny difference.
Yes that's correct. I hope that with the new API there won't be as much variation in terms of performance and quality/correctness between vendor drivers anymore.
That cheered me up.
Gallium isn't a graphics API. It's an architecture for writing drivers. Nothing more.
That really interesting and Heise.de is a very trustable source.
Sounds like a complete rewrite also with a now shading language to better control GPU/CPU workload.
Which begs the question why AMD can't do the same... You could wonder how much AMD is interested in pushing OpenGL as Khronos Member anyway, now that they put everything behind Mantle. Which should...
