Back in September the Enlightenment project's EFL library added atomic mode-setting and nuclear page-flipping support to provide a "perfect rendering" and a "buttery smooth" experience. Earlier this month was then an update on the Ecore_Drm2 state while coming out this week is a Samsung OSG blog post explaining more about the atomic mode-setting details.

Prolific Enlightenment contributor Chris Michael has written a Samsung OSG blog post about using atomic mode-setting with their EFL Ecore_Drm2 library. He explained the support was implemented without adding any new API so existing users will see the support "just work" and then he went on to share the technical details about how it's implemented.
