While Canonical is working on tiny bits of Wayland code for upstream
, Intel OTC developers and others continue with a bulk of the advancements for Wayland and Weston. One of the latest Intel patch sets is for handling cursor surfaces and animated cursors.
Hitting the Wayland mailing list
on Friday from Ander Conselvan de Oliveira at Intel was the patches for Wayland cursor surfaces and animated cursor handling with the Wayland protocol. "This series adds the protocol for a client to make a surface created by it the current pointer surface. That way it is possible to get frame callbacks on this surface and use it to implement animated cursors."
Lots of great Wayland/Weston improvements have been happening lately!
