Wayland's Weston Gets Output Scaling Support
Besides a new Raspberry Pi renderer for Weston, another interesting set of Wayland patches today is for providing output scaling support with Weston when using the X11 and DRM back-ends.
The set of 15 patches that were published by Red Hat's Alexander Larsson allow for output and buffer scaling to occur under Weston. A scaling factor can be specified via the Weston configuration file and then all modes will be scaled by that amount when the Weston compositor is running atop an X11 or DRM interfaces with the OpenGL or Pixman renderers.
The set of Weston patches for this scaling support are currently available from the Wayland mailing list prior to being merged.
