    Phoronix: X.Org Server Saw More Code In 2014 Than 2013, But Its Heydays Are Over

    The X.Org Server had more code churn in 2014 than it did in 2013, but its pace has certainly slowed down compared to years prior. But at the same time for those thinking X.Org Server development is going the way of the dinosaur due to Mir and Wayland, you're sadly mistaken too...

        What are your hopes for the X.Org Server in 2015?
        - Security and bug fixes
        - Optimization if it's relatively low-hanging fruit and doesn't require a lot of dev time
        - Keeping a stable ABI as much as possible to not inconvenience blob GPU driver users
        - Maybe some DRI3 work for those who care

          - All drivers use DRI3 and Present extensions.
          - DRI and DRI2 are support are removed.
          - Libinput is used, and Xi, Xkb, etc are all removed so we have only one input stack.
          - All distributions (esp Ubuntu) ship X without superuser privileges.
          - Lots of stuff removed, lots of modules removed, lots of cruft removed.

                  I also have none. I'm loving my tear-free Xfce4 non-composited xorg desktop.

                    I would love to see the ability to update video drivers without logging out. But I think this is more of a window manager / display manager limitation than an X shortcoming.
