    Phoronix: X.Org Server 1.19.7 Is Being Prepared For Ubuntu With OutputClass Improvements

    With the feature-packed X.Org Server 1.20 going to be too late to make it into the April release of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, a new X.Org Server point release is being prepared by an Ubuntu developer that does include some basic new functionality...

    It's a shame that Ubuntu 18.04 wont have X.Org 1.20. IIRC there are a bunch of other great minor releases of popular software that it's also missing. I guess this will always happen though, as people are always working on useful new features for Open Source software and it would be unreasonable to expect them to always perfectly align with LTS releases of popular distros.

      Soon Oibaf ppa and Padoka ppa are broken in uhbuntu too, thanks to these closed source fans, nvidia and timo. Timo has hides GLVND in the libegl1 package. Debian supports open source, what a joke.

        Is anyone working on TearFree for modesetting DDX?

          Enable display compositing, works with Xfce. Makes Xfce 4.13 slow though.

            That will still tear on rotated display, which is norm for tablets, so tablet users have to get back to Intel DDX to activate TearFree. There is no solution for modesetting DDX AFAIK.

              since it will backport next year to Ubuntu 18.04.2 it's no problem, they can't put a unstable git in their Lts distro.

                A good solution is no to use modesetting since is piece of garbage with intel. Really bad decision by Ubuntu stoping using sna intel driver

                  If nvidia blob is an only glvnd user, Debian should provide two egl packages - one with --disable-libglvnd for main and another with --enable-libglvnd for contrib.

                  Does anybody else uses glvnd and not in combo with green blob?

                  There are some exceptions really, as even web browsers should be in contrib as we don't know will you download only blob things with your browser, but since it could be used for both it is considered fine for main

                    Tablet users running Linux, yeah right and Bin Laden had something to do with three skyscrapers being demolished on 9-11. LOL

                    My Apple iPad Pro can run two apps side by side in landscape mode and refresh half the screen where a YouTube vid is playing at 120Hz and the other half where I’m scrolling through a web browser at 60Hz.

                    Maybe Linux should stick with catering to corprorate clients and their datacenter needs. It’s going nowhere really slowly on the desktop... and it’s a slow motion train wreck on tablets and phones.
