XWayland, NotifyFD, Video ABI Bump In X.Org Server Git

Written by Michael Larabel in X.Org on 1 December 2015 at 02:46 PM EST. 9 Comments
A lot of new code was pushed into X.Org Server Git today.

It's been just under one month since the release of X.Org Server 1.18 and thus development for X.Org Server 1.19 is now getting into full swing.

Among the work landing today:

- Changes by NVIDIA's Alex Goins as prep work towards his PRIME double-buffering / synchronization support. The changes also result in the xf86 video driver ABI being bumped.

- New NotifyFD interfaces by Keith Packard as a callback interface to monitor file descriptors to complement the existing interfaces. A lot of other code was changed following that commit.

- Various XWayland commits.

More details via the X.Org Server Git log.
