    Phoronix: GNOME 3.36 Seeing Last Minute Mutter Wayland Improvements

    On top of the last minute GNOME 3.36 work on scaled/transformed hardware cursors handling, there is some other interesting last-minute Wayland work on the Mutter side...

      What's current status on Wayland vs X.Org, regarding performance, and power consumption, and glitches?

        kravemir Depends on hardware and kernels. Recent kernels seem to expose blocking issues. That’s purely anecdotal though..

        Personally I prefer the Wayland session on Fedora. 3.35.92 is not in yet but will land very soon. Important blocking fixes from Hergert might also be needed. Those will likely come before .0 or .1

          Power consumption under Wayland in theory should be much lower than the previous X compositor setup. There's a reason X was avoided for phones.

          I've been using GNOME Wayland for nearly two years now and haven't noticed anything major (I've had the shell crash three times in those two years). Performance is fine unless you're running games, where there is room for improvement over input handling and Xwayland.

            What about the undirect fullscreen Wayland windows. Did that one make it?

              Nobody really cares because the xwayland bits would need to come down the line at first and there is no plan when the next X will be released.

                This release is going to be awesome it seems. Can't wait for it to land on Arch.

                  MastaG Not landed yet.
                  Might still happen before Fedora 32 release.

                    lumks That’s not a blocker. If GNOME needs a new X release then we get a new X release.
