Libhybris Proposed For Wayland's Weston
Phoronix: Libhybris Proposed For Wayland's Weston
An Intel engineer has proposed mainlining libhybris support for Wayland's Weston compositor support...
This would be huge! We'd be the only desktop that can do this seemlessly.
I don't remember how many times I've wanted to run some android app in GS, now if GS only supported widgets so I could have a place to run them (perhaps in OVERVIEW?).
Libhybris isn't meant for Android app compatibility for Linux desktops. Instead it lets you use Android drivers compiled for use with Bionic (Android's C library) to be used on systems using the glibc C library (which is what Linux desktops use as a C language implementation). This will let Linux distributions make use of Android GPU drivers made by the GPU manufactors themselves.
