X.Org Server 1.14: In March With New Features
Phoronix: X.Org Server 1.14: In March With New Features
Plans for the X.Org Server 1.14 release were laid this morning in Nürnberg, including a release date for this next feature release...
Michael, why's it only 2min and 13seconds long? They talk about the release date, but thats it and we all know Keith wouldnt be like "Okay so we're release in 6 months. Good. Talk's over!" Where's the rest of it?
Wait, if Xinerama is going to be dropped, what is its replacement? A replacement that
- allows moving windows between screens powered by different gpus
- provides 3d acceleration on all screens
I was not aware of one.

Aren't the provideroutputsources in the current master branches supposed to work like that already?
I would like to see after all this years, X render with vsync implemented, but I guess with the iminent death of X in favor of Wayland, that they wouldn't bother to fix it.
Nobody (not even the Wayland developers) are suggesting that X will die for a very long time.

Did anyone else read the bit about Packard's drafting of dri3 as saying they aren't intending to add new features? I don't know how extensible dri2 is so I don't know to what degree it can be changed will remaining backwards compatible.
I hope XWayland gets merged.
Another cool thing would be to run Wayland and Xorg without root privileges by dropping privileges.
