X.Org Server: Merging Drivers Back In, Avoiding Regressions

Ending XDC2011 Chicago on Wednesday afternoon was a discussion led by Apple's Jeremy Huddleston, Intel's Keith Packard, and Oracle's Alan Coopersmith. The discussion was about X.Org Server release schedules. The two main points brought up is merging the drivers back into the X.Org Server tree as well as aiming for a regression-free X.Org Server by reverting any commits to the server Git tree that are regressions that aren't fixed within one week's time.

Two More Developers Join The Chicago Linux Panel

Next Tuesday during XDC2011 Chicago at the Illinois Institute of Technology I am hosting a panel about contributing to Linux and open-source projects, in particular, X.Org, Mesa, and the Linux kernel, but the information should be largely relevant to any free software project. This discussion panel is largely targeted towards university students and others that aren't yet contributing to upstream projects, with most of the panel participants having begun their Linux contributions prior to graduating from university and then most of them being poached by major open-source companies.

A Q&A Panel About Contributing To X.Org & Open-Source

Next week at XDC2011 Chicago there will be a rather unique discussion taking place that's quite different from what normally goes on at this annual X.Org Developers' Conference. There is going to be a moderated panel discussion (tentatively titled "Contributing to X.Org and Open-Source") about contributing to X.Org, the Linux kernel, Mesa, and open-source software in general. For those not residents of the Chicago area, this session will be broadcast on the Internet.

What To Expect From X Input 2.1; Multi-Touch Is Delayed

While there has been an X.Org multi-touch implementation for X Input 2.1 dating back about a year, there's still no formal X Input 2.1 release (X Input 2.0 came in 2009). When X Input 2.1 is released, likely as part of X.Org Server 1.12, it won't even offer up the multi-touch support. Here's some of what you can expect to see from X Input 2.1 and then the X Input 2.2 milestone.
