    Phoronix: X.Org Server 1.20 Release Candidate Due For Release Tomorrow

    Indeed it turns out that the landing today of RandR leases and deep color / color depth 30 support for GLAMOR/modesetting is because Red Hat's Adam Jackson is finally wrangling the xorg-server 1.20 release together...

    More controversy, more clicks, more money for Michael.

    Not a issue for wayland protocol as it only cares about buffers past by fd and those buffers could contain anything. So its just compositors and graphics subsystems implementing the feature deep color nothing in Wayland itself need to change.

    This is one of the changes about wayland that is just great. The protocol no longer need modification every time we need a new buffer type.

    So with wayland is more a question does mesa and the lower drivers parts support deep color as well as the compositor. There was a prototype tested wayland with 16 bit per channel colour without changing anything protocol and that was achived by patching mesa and using a compositor that supported it.

    It already works properly - but yes, this release will allow for direct mode support, so that we can have less latency and get the DE's compositor out of the way that could be limiting FPS of the display. (In fact currently I need to use a DE where you can disable compositing).
