A Screensaver Interface Comes To Wayland
For those wishing to follow the development of Wayland Display Server, there's some new progress to report on. This time it's about supporting screensavers under Wayland.
Pekka Paalanen has proposed a screensaver interface for Wayland, which includes adding the interface to the protocol file, compositor stubs, and other changes.
Details and the patch for Wayland screensaver can be found in this mailing list message. Below is also a description of the work. Pardon for the terse posting due to needing to go meet-up with Egbert Eich of SUSE/RadeonHD, Martin Gräßlin of KDE/KWin, and other Linux stakeholders.
Add the screensaver interface to the desktop-shell protocol file. Also add stubs for it in the compositor, and make wscreensaver to bind to the screensaver interface. Wscreensaver gets a new option --demo to retain the current behaviour as a regular wayland client.
