With the 2011 Google Summer of Code, we now know how the Gallium3D OpenCL state tracker and morphological anti-aliasing (MLAA) turned out, but how did the remote display capabilities for the Wayland Display Server evolve over the summer?

What's New In The Land Of Wayland?

It's been a few weeks since really mentioning the Wayland Display Server at Phoronix (the last time was in June when XWayland and xf86-video-wlshm were released). It's not because development of this next-generation Linux display server has stalled, but there's been some progress made and overall just the lower level of activity during the summer months.

Wayland Can Now Use Gallium3D Software Rendering

Besides the obvious requirements and demands of needing to design a display server that can fully replace the needs of the long-standing X Server, and making all the tool-kits and major software support running natively on Wayland, another inhibitor to Wayland's adoption has been its graphics driver requirements. In particular, Wayland requires kernel mode-setting, EGL (in place of a DRI2 requirement), in-kernel memory management (GEM), and 3D acceleration.
