    Let's hope they decide to launch Xserver 1.21 soon enough for autumn distros.

      No need for 1.21.. 1.20.x can bring the needed Xwayland fixes.

        How are you still allowed to post here? STFU and stop trolling. You've been told countless times that Xserver is more than XWayland. Just because that's all you care about does not mean that's how everyone feels.
        Remember, an X dev called your trolling "amazingly stupid": https://www.phoronix.com/forums/foru...71#post1141771

          It looks like three of the four (Eric Anholt, Keith Packard, Harry Wentland) are incumbents, and the only change is Mark Filion replacing Bryce Harrington.

            DanL So you disagree with current directions of X development. That’s your problem and not mine.

            ..And the backporting of Xwayland fixes continues It doesn’t matter who tags the release. Matt can keep doing it but it follows the agenda set by the Wayland Meritocracy.

              No, I disagree with your characterization of X development (i.e. your blatant lying and trolling), especially when X devs tell you to stop with the "Xwayland is the only thing that matters" nonsense. That's your problem.

                DanL Well none of this is our business. Arm chair comments on Phoronix doesn’t matter. The Meritocracy decides and they told X.org was in hard maintenance mode back in June 2019. So they are not working on any imminent 1.21 releases. So yeah all you get is fixes backported to 1.20.x. Why is that difficult for you to process?

                  The X.org foundation board is not involved in technical matters of the foundation projects.

                  Git master has important new Xwayland features.

                    MrCooper Important Xwayland patches are backported. Sometimes they just develop for master and then immediately backport to 1.20.x. That comes with the least maintenance cost.
