DirectFB's Ilixi Fast & Featureful Toolkit Reached v1.0

Ilixi is a tool-kit designed around the DirectFB environment that is very lightweight, supports key and pointer navigation, provides event-driven widgets, aims to be very fast, and is designed for use atop only DirectFB. Ilixi has picked up many features this year and it's now deemed production ready...
DirectFB is losing ground as lightweight and modern display servers (like Wayland) start appearing for Linux and as smartphones etc become more powerful, right?
Hardly. Wayland still uses more complex, slower (if run CPU only) stack with more deps than DirectFB. For lightweight or integrated solutions (2D-only blit chips), DFB will have its niche.
