    XWayland

    I hope XWayland gets merged.

    Another cool thing would be to run Wayland and Xorg without root privileges by dropping privileges.

    So it looks like Fedora 19 and Ubuntu 13.04 will be the first major distros with a working, thought not default, Wayland desktop.
    Did anyone else read the bit about Packard's drafting of dri3 as saying they aren't intending to add new features? I don't know how extensible dri2 is so I don't know to what degree it can be changed will remaining backwards compatible.

    Nobody (not even the Wayland developers) are suggesting that X will die for a very long time.

    I would like to see after all this years, X render with vsync implemented, but I guess with the iminent death of X in favor of Wayland, that they wouldn't bother to fix it.

    Aren't the provideroutputsources in the current master branches supposed to work like that already?

    Presumably they are ripping out Xinerama so that everything Xinerama used to do can be taken over by a RandR update. RandR 1.6 maybe?

    Michael, why's it only 2min and 13seconds long? They talk about the release date, but thats it and we all know Keith wouldnt be like "Okay so we're release in 6 months. Good. Talk's over!" Where's the rest of it?
