    Phoronix: NVIDIA Releases Its Stable 302 Driver w/ RandR 1.3

    Before calling it a week, NVIDIA Linux engineers released the 302.17 stable Linux driver. This is the first stable/certified Linux driver in the 302.xx series and thus the first that brings the long-awaited RandR 1.2/1.3 support...

    My question was, to put it in other words: what is Wayland's solution called that does the stuff that RandR does in X?

    I mean, we all saw youtube videos of Wayland (or Weston?) rotating textboxes and windows, right? Is that Wayland's equivalent of RandR? What's it called? How is it different (technologically) from X's approach (RandR)?
    It's simply called "Wayland", as the functionality is part of the core design. If you support Wayland you support the feature, and afaik it's simply to support Wayland then X+RandR, comming from zero implementation.

    We could sort of get it in the form of GPU offloading with dma-buf/prime.

    It probably won't be as performant as a real Optimus setup, but I have high hopes.

    Now if we only can get Nvidia Optimus (switchable GPU), fast VT switching and Wayland support...

    I guess RandR has a name because it's an extension; the functionality was added later to X. Wayland isn't at a point yet where you would need to extend it.

    It probably doesn't have a name. Why would it necessarily need one?

    It's like asking: "Why is my Hondas steering wheel not part of your Toyota?"
    That's not my question.
