Canonical's Mir Display Server for Ubuntu has received some interesting commits in the past day.
The changes noted by Anzwix
for the Mir trunk code are:
- Mir now supports multi-threaded compositing where there is one thread per output frame-buffer (DisplayBuffer).
- The rest of the functions have been hooked up to enable on Mir a fully synchronous client API. Mir is namely designed to be a asynchronous while for those wanting to write a simple synchronous program for Mir, the option is out there. This commit also makes all but one of the example Mir clients synchronous.
The recent Mir activity will be further looked at in the morning. There's also other branches of Mir code
by Mir's small development team
for those wanting to explore other features being baked for this Wayland competitor.
