    This is for Wayland, not Xorg. It was claimed to have been merged for 5.16. https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pa...rged-KWin-5.16

    Damn, I forgot to mention I'm talking about Wayland.

    Afaik it was supposed to happen with Plasma 5.16 but it doesn't work.

    It's good they are bringing stuff to X session. Wayland one is the way forward, but is still plagued by major bugs and missing features to switch to it.

    Considering the pile of shit that the Steam client and its runtime are, I wouldn't say Valve actions can be used to say what is good and what isn't.

    They didn't develop it for X11 because they have a feature-freeze policy regarding X11, which means no new features are developed for X11 and all such effort goes to Wayland. X11 only gets fixes. Of course, sometimes they push this policy aside to implement one feature or another, like this one.
    That's not what the policy says. New features need to work on Wayland first, X11-exclusive features are rejected.

    I didn't mean dead as in "it's not maintained/used anymore" but as in "it has no future". Maybe I should've used "dying" instead.

    They should have made that Night Color thing an effect in the first place.
