    Default Mir Display Server Support Lands In SDL2

    Phoronix: Mir Display Server Support Lands In SDL2

    SDL, the library commonly used by cross-platform games for abstracting large portions of their input and output handling, now has support for running on Canonical's Mir Display Server for Ubuntu Linux...

    They are not picking sides. Might be smart.

    You can submit patches for Haiku if you maintain them. The entire goal of SDL is to abstract away as many different platforms differences as possible, so it's only a logical thing to do.

    Mir and Wayland will be disabled in 2.0.2

    Temporarily default Wayland and Mir to disabled, for 2.0.2 release.

    We'll flip the default back to enabled right after 2.0.2 is finalized, and
    try to declare them stable and ready by 2.0.3.

    Those that have an interest in supporting them in 2.0.2 can manually enable
    them in the configure script with --enable-video-wayland and/or
    --enable-video-mir.

    SDL2 is used by the Steam Runtime and Steam games need to support everything as best as possible, so this makes a lot of sense.

    Mir support is mostly copy and paste from the Wayland port.

    Minus the licensing tidbit or giving credit where it's due, of course....

    I don’t particularly care about Mir or Wayland at this point, but it’s nice to know that SDL2 will work everywhere!
