    Phoronix: Intel Developer Working On Adding HDR Display Support To Wayland / Weston

    While the Linux desktop's display stack has largely reached parity with Windows and macOS in recent years (most recently, the DRM core properties hitting Linux 5.0 around Adaptive-Sync / VRR), but one of the areas that has remained elusive has been for full HDR display support. We've seen NVIDIA working on nursing the X.Org-based display stack for HDR while now Intel appears to be working on the necessary Wayland changes...

    YAY! We've been working on HDR support in Krita since mid 2018 -- and have it working on Windows, and on Windows only. It's really quite cool, and I would even say, spectacular. This might actually drive us to spend time with Wayland... Even though there's no support for drawing tablets in Qt on Wayland yet.

      On wide-gamut non-HDR monitors, full-screen games still look like <censored>. Oversaturated colors. I.e. Linux still does not have mandatory full-screen color correction that works even for legacy apps from the times when all monitors were strictly sRGB. And - you call this feature parity with MacOS?

        Nice... hope it will not take too long until the other compositors will pick that up then. My screen is HDR capable.

          By any chance, maybe you know why stylus buttons support is broken in Krita for Linux? BTN_FORWARD and BTN_EXTRA is ignored, and seems like eraser is ignored too.

                Yay this is awesome!
                What kind of applications can use HDR? mpv has a Wayland context and does HDR on Windows, so I wonder if this would mean that mpv will be able to use HDR on Linux too.

                  It is about a wayland protocol specification. It's entirely independent of the GPU vendor and solely depends on weather the compositor implements it or not.

                    so, is not intel a vendor?
