    Phoronix: GNOME's Mutter Finally Wires Up Middle Button Click Emulation

    Coming just past the GNOME 3.36.0 release is the merging of a year-old patch-set to tie in middle mouse button click emulation with libinput for Mutter...

    Months is not a good metric. It’s all about meeting distribution release deadlines. Small stuff like this can go in after the .0 release. So it missed 3.34 but not 3.36. That’s acceptable because the code needed to pass CI and had some big changes.

    Anyway more interesting stuff got into Gnome-Shell. Florian found a few more blocking cases ref. Hergert’s recent performance work.

    All fixed now.

        This is why I think Wayland is decades away from usability. Whatever benefits it can have to some (I don't care about my frames being perfect, I prefer per-application vsync settings and I think screen tearing is superior to input lag) are nothing compared to the lack of basic functionality, like compatibility with OBS, and the bad design choices forcing compositor developers to implement basic functionality via extensions. Windows can't even have any control over where they show up, so things like notifications, docks and something similar to dmenu require special attention from compositor developers. Since when should someone implementing a compositor care about something like functionality needed to properly handle pointer devices?

          DoMiNeLa10 Your KDE problems belong in a KDE thread.

            The Wayland protocol allows less input lag than Xorg when you start to implement things like direct scan out

              He doesn't mention KDE. And besides: you're one to talk! You always infiltrate KDE threads with your GNOME crap. You're free to to say stuff like this once you stop doing it yourself.

                Applications need to be compatible with protocols, not the other way around.

                  Vistaus He injects KDE problems into an unrelated wayland thread. Wayland IS ready, some desktops are not ready.

                    AFAIK OBS can record from Wayland - and do a better job than on X11 due to the implementation of dma-buf:
