    I have written a request for the release of 0.19.1 : https://github.com/sddm/sddm/issues/1549
    Could you at least thumbs up that issue/request there so maybe we can have at least have recent commits as a release

    It's not that HDR is impossible on Linux, it's actually supported in the kernel and graphics drivers. It's just the Linux desktop isn't ready to activate that. There was at least one attempt that I know of (by NVIDIA) to bring HDR to Xorg, but they gave up as it breaks too many things and also Xorg is not being actively worked on these days. On Wayland though it's a WIP, but it's still an early stage (some early unstable color management protocol drafts, experimental implementations in Weston).

    I've been wondering lately how hard it would be to write a pure wayland replacement for SDDM, when I was looking on ohloh it looked like the codebases for everything but GDM seemed small,

    SDDM really needs regular releases! And Wayland support is a quite an important feature. It's time that SDDM fulfills its promise. The git version seems to work quite well so far.

    Doesn't look dead to me. If that's your definition of dead, then pretty much all software known to mankind is dead.

    Isn't that for distros to handle?

    At least for sending the HDR metadata when playing movies to the monitor or TV.
