Stepping Towards Better VR Headset Support On Wayland
One of the areas DeVault has been focusing on improving/implementing has been around DRM leasing support on Wayland, similar to the DRM leasing work done by Keith Packard a few years back when initially plumbing better VR head-mounted display support on the X.Org side for Valve. Drew recently proposed a new Vulkan extension for acquiring a Wayland display, similar to the existing Xlib display extension.
Besides that Vulkan extension he's also been working on the appropriate DRM leasing protocol extension for Wayland, working on the driver-side support within Mesa, and also getting the Vulkan code running within the likes of WLROOTS and Sway. He also has plans for extending the support through to XWayland.
