    Phoronix: GNOME Mutter & Shell 43 Beta Bring Several Very Exciting Changes

    GNOME's Shell and Mutter components have released their beta versions for this GNOME 43 milestone. Particularly on the Mutter side are some very exciting changes from improvements to direct scan-out, high resolution scroll wheel support being completed and merged, various Wayland improvements, and more performance optimizations...

    > Up to this point direct scanout only worked for single head display configurations.

    This is not correct. It already worked in multi-display configs, but only for one at a time. Now one can have one surface get scanned out for each connected display.

        I had some issues while expanding my monitor to the tv, I can't use the native resolution, on kde Wayland worked ok. I hope that this fixes the issue. (Rx580)

          I thought triple buffering is already merged

            What size of TV? Last week and the week before that I had Fedora GNOME on two separate TVs (at different times/houses). A 4K and a 1080p.

            I had this funky issue where the entire extension interface would crash if I double-clicked a full screen video until I logged out and back on. If I used keyboard shortcuts or the full screen video toggle icon it didn't crash. That happened with VLC, Celluloid, and the default, crappy, and useless Videos. It happened frequently enough that I installed KDE.

            I didn't have any issues in regards to overscan or the image not fitting the screen (had to use the overscan toggle on the 1080p screen but the image was perfect)

              Both are [email protected], if I expand it and force 1080, the tv reduces a lot the Hz.

                Really great changes! I hope that 44 will also finally bring proper AppIndicators (tray icons) support (based on the new xdg spec). ;-)

                  Yea, this is one of the paper cuts that keep me using KDE Plasma

                    Still no DRM lease support, either.

                    I thought so too, but: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutte..._requests/1441
