    This. Those feature will take YEARS to reach an LTS. Such a shame.

      Hopefully Michael would soon write also "The Shiny Breakages Of X.Org Server 1.20"

      I am sure this would need a good amount of point releases, so that average Joe could be happy with it

          Hopefully they never will... And we get Wayland instead...

            I assume this will be soon followed by 3 people posting that they've been using Wayland for a long time now. They will be followed by two more people complaining about how if anything in Wayland crashes it takes Wayland down with it. I don't know enough to want to try Wayland till the arguments subside in a few more years (Ubuntu 20.04 I'm thinking).

              You want those features ESPECIALLY if you are going to use Wayland, because of XWayland...

                Who are we? Wayland is not for everybody, i even think distros who ship it by default will require Photosensitive Seizure Warning during boot since it forces compositor

                Of course that warning will also slow down boot time, as it would be required at least 10 seconds sleep for average IQ Joe to be able to read it I am even more for total stop of boot with concrete input Yes/No buttons, so if user does not agree to be able to turn computer off properly

                  So, no HDR support yet? I guess it still just a few unimplemented proposals.

                    Forgive the naive question, but will this update allow the playback (or passthrough?) of HDR 2160p video with something like mpv and ffmpeg? I understand that DeepColor is somewhat related to this? If someone could explain I would be very grateful.

                    Thanks

                      Because they lack manpower. Releases eat up time and effort, and nobody has the time to deal with them. We're only getting one now because Red Hat wanted it out and they're paying the guy who's doing it.
