    Phoronix: DirectFB2 Is Modernizing DirectFB With Meson, Modularizing The Sources

    DirectFB2 is in development with work on it having started last year after the original DirectFB project ceased development a half-decade ago. While more embedded/mobile platforms have moved on from DirectFB and now targeting Wayland, DirectFB2 hopes to restore its viability for embedded systems...

      I had presumed that DirectFB users had migrated to DRM, rather than to a windowing system like X11 or Wayland.

      What does DirectFB provide that DRM does not? Support for more hardware devices perhaps? Or simplicity?

        I use DirectFB at work and we migrated to X11 for most of our users. We only run 1 application on an embedded device. We support a lot of different gpu vendors and some of them (nvidia in particular) has x11 specific graphics/video api. We do also direct passthrough of video rendering on some setups even on DirectFB through DRM.
