    Mir Code Moves Along, Branches Begin Appearing

    Phoronix: Mir Code Moves Along, Branches Begin Appearing

    There's code being committed to the new Mir Display Server every few hours. There's also numerous Bazaar code branches appearing too that show early work on other functionality...

    Figures

    For so much hatred, it sure is moving right along. No surprise, things people hate usually get the Green light while things people enjoy usually gets put on the back burner. But maybe something good will come of it that benefits us all.

    I have no idea how fast these projects are moving, I'm not a developer. But the fact that there is so many big headliner items being worked on at once, such as multi-gpu support, seems postive. IMO, anyway.
    My guess is that this isn't a sign of fast progress - it's that all the stuff they've been doing in secret for the past year is now being made public.

    Tetchy much? By expressing an opinion you are also expressing an intent for it to be discussed.

    The hardware SHOULDNT matter, but there was a note in the Mir wiki (taking it with a grain of salt) that ARM hardware and client side buffers do have issues that for some reason server side buffers didnt have.

    My understanding is that some ARM hardware limitations require this. But Wayland will allow you to do it if you want, (to the complete surprise of the Mir devs, who were clueless).

    In what way does this pretain too or assist the conversation? Your a disease.

    No I know some ARM hardware does require it, but if ARM requires Server-Side allocation, and x86 should do Client-Side allocation, then Wayland has the right idea. Allow either, and you could ifdef the different paths depending on the architecture being compiled for, instead of mandating 1 way for both considering they require opposite implementations.
