The X.Org Developers' Summit in Toulouse finished up over the weekend. It is now time for PhoronixFest at Oktoberfest in Munich, but here is a recap of what was discussed at this French X.Org event along with some photos.

Among the items I reported from the event was the X.Org Foundation is looking for a new logo, a recap of the new development process, what parts of X.Org should be eliminated, an overview of the second day, the Wayland demonstration, EGL in Mesa, Luc believing the Linux desktop will die if drivers are integrated into the X.Org Server, and then word that most X.Org drivers won't be merged into X.Org Server 1.10. I also submitted a proposal for organizing XDS 2011 in Chicago.

A few developers listening to Intel's Keith Packard talk.

Kristian Høgsberg showing off a version of glxgears that was ported to OpenGL ES 2.0 (es2gears) during his talk about EGL on Linux and in Mesa / Gallium3D.

The XDS 2010 dinner. Matthieu Herrb, currently on the X.Org Foundation Board and organizer of XDS Toulouse, is the one standing up on the right. Of interest to Phoronix readers, sitting down next to Matthieu and the French woman is Richard Li of AMD who has been working on the open-source Mesa support and is beginning to start tackling Gallium3D.
