Last week Plymouth
had picked up a DRM renderer plug-in
, but now this week it has picked up an X11 renderer plug-in. This plug-in makes it possible to run Plymouth and its graphical plug-ins from within an X Server. Right now this is largely beneficial for debugging and testing out Plymouth code and new plug-ins, while in the future it may come in handy for other uses too.
The Git commit adding this X11 renderer to Plymouth can be found on FreeDesktop.org
with a more detailed explanation.
