Mir's Demo Shell Is Working On Its Own Renderer
The latest work out of Canonical's Mir team for the Ubuntu display server is beginning to form its own custom renderer fore its demo-shell.
Mir's demo-shell is used for showing off the possibilities of this Wayland competitor and experimenting with Mir code. The demo-shell now has its own custom renderer. This renderer right now doesn't do much over its existing GL renderer, but evidently there's plans to do more going forward.
Daniel van Vugt wrote in the Bzr revision introducing the custom renderer for demo-shell, "This will be used for future window management/decoration experiments. But for now, it just sets a custom background colour for demo-shell (grey)."
