    Phoronix: Some Of What's Coming For Wayland's Weston 4.0 Compositor

    Earlier this week ongoing Wayland/Weston release manager Bryce Harrington at Samsung laid out plans for Wayland 1.15 and Weston 4.0. There's been some push-back on the proposed dates to try to allow some more work to land in these upcoming six month releases to Wayland/Weston, but long story short, these next releases will be here in the near future...

    Windows has a standardized way of screencasting. So does macOS. And here in Linux we have this supposed replacement to X that is not even designed to allow something as basic as this.

    As it is now, OBS and SSR can only do screen recording over X. And I have not spun up X ever since Gnome made Wayland an option in Fedora 23.

    - Mode switching support with the X11 compositor.
    What does that mean? Is it about xwayland or wayland within in a xorg session?

    Available options:

    1. Help implement it
    2. Go use Windows
    3. Cry about it like a whiney open source parasite

    The Phoronix forum is packed to the brim with option #3 cretins.
