Wayland's Weston Gets Color Management Framework
Written by Michael Larabel in Wayland on 4 April 2013 at 12:01 PM EDT. 11 Comments
The Weston compositor to Wayland now has an early color management framework.

Richard Hughes, the free software developer that has been quite involved within GNOME's color management areas, wrote a set of patches providing an initial color management framework for Weston.

The patches provide the color framework along with the ability to load CMS (Color Management System) modules, and then finally is a CMS module written for colord. With these patches applied to Weston, the color profile can be changed at run-time using either the gnome-color-manager or colord-kde.

These patches are still considered a work-in-progress but can be found on the wayland-devel list.
