A Few Notes From Day 2 Of XDS Toulouse
More details will come later along with the audio/video recordings that ended out the X.Org Developers' Summit in Toulouse, but here are a few random bits from so far today:
- For those that have become interested in coming up with a new logo for X.Org, Alan Coopersmith issued this mailing list message today. Coming up with a new logo for the X.Org Foundation has been on their agenda for many years, but now it may finally materialize thanks to Phoronix readers.
- Canonical introduced the X.Org Gestures Extension last month as part of their own multi-touch framework, but there's been some dissenting opinions about this extension proposed by Canonical's Chase Douglas. One of the controversial items was this extension moving the handling of gesture recognition inside the X.Org Server itself rather than the window manager, a separate library, or elsewhere. It has now been agreed upon that gesture recognition will not be entering the X.Org Server.
- X.Org multi-touch support won't be done by the time X.Org Server 1.10 is released nor is there any real time-line for its completion.
- From last night: The French ENAC/CENA was visited in Toulouse where they had two interesting demonstrations and their advanced input and graphics work done. What X.Org driver do they use? The proprietary NVIDIA driver, it was their only possible option for handling their OpenGL needs.
