    Phoronix: X.Org "Katamari" Releases Are Officially Dead

    It shouldn't come as a surprise with X11R7.7 being the last "katamari" release and it having debuted back in 2012, but no further "bundled" releases of X.Org are planned...

    Is there any roadmap for X.Org?
    What will is coming in the upcoming X.Org Server release?

    Drop DRI1? Drop DRI2? Drop any other modules? Will there be a DRI4?
    HDMI VRR? VESA Adaptive-Sync? HDR10+?
    A tiny X.Org Server featuring nothing but XWayland?

      That's it, I'm downloading Fedora 30 and trying out Wayland on Nvidia's driver, I'm sick of X11.

            It sounds like an ancient, Japanese sexual practise.

              once upon a time there was a big xorg release which includes all drivers in one package.
              the last one of this kind of release was called katamari

                I suppose it is like OpenBSD's Xenocara.
                Basically code / libraries that are so closely related have no real reason to be split into hundreds of pointless packages wasting man hours to manage.

                  So, this is only relevant to people not using a distro that already bundles Xorg?

                    i'd say it's irrelevant for everybody as i am not aware of any distribution who uses the monolothic build.
