Color Management Code Merged Into Wayland/Weston

Written by Michael Larabel in Wayland on 10 May 2013 at 01:25 PM EDT. 18 Comments
Support for color management has been merged into Wayland's Weston compositor.

The Wayland color management work done by Richard Hughes and talked about for the past month has finally landed in mainline Weston. The code allows for ICC color profiles to be specified within the Weston configuration file or a CMS implementation to be loaded from a pluggable module.

This new feature will be present in Wayland 1.2 for those concerned about color accuracy.
