    I wonder if any other news-worthy things have happened in the Wayland space recently... 👀

    Totally unrelated, but how does this affect Hyperland?

    I love all the stuff happening with Wayland and in the graphics space. I am no expert, but seems like progress is happening, so many cool and interesting window managers coming, etc. And the lower-level graphics "plumbing" keeps improving. I first installed Linux around 2001 on a cast-off DX468 that I had to take the bus a good half an hour away to track down an IDE CD ROM drive for so I could install. I was so excited when I was able to get the graphics going and launch TWM. I couldn't do much with that machine, but I made it work!

    Linux was never my "daily driver", but I've consistently tried different things, done hundred of different installations in virtual machines just to learn and try things out - then toss, rinse, and repeat. Lately at home I'm booting up into Linux more and more. As I said already, I'm not an expert, but I'm not all that clueless as well.

    In addition to graphics-level progress, we have (at least close to if not fully) pro-level audio with PipeWire pretty much default, and so much more. Obviously there is more still that can happen, but things are happening. A lot of people like to complain about so much, and of course healthy and constructive debate is good to sort things out, but other than that I say let's just keep getting it done!

    Nope, the activity around colo(u)r management happens in wayland-protocols repo and it’s still very much a WIP. It’ll be like this for some months/years to come.

    Looks like it, based on this pull request merged 2 days ago which is reported to fix said "socket filling up with mouse movement on unresponsive applications" issue (wayland/wayland#159).
    Keep client connection buffers unbound but add an API set set the max buffer size for connection buffers on the server side. The default max buffer...

    I know that.

    I personally don't see it either that's why I was asking. My understanding is that under some usecases the hardcoded queue length of Wayland can get full. I remember reading that GNOME already fixed this instead of waiting for a proper fix in libwayland. Is this that fix?
