Wayland, X.Org For Ubuntu's Future

Wayland was talked about this morning at the summit in Budapest. In particular, the outlook for Wayland in Ubuntu and Linaro. Separately, there's also X.Org notes from today's meetings.

Phoronix readers should already be very familiar with Wayland due to all the articles I've written on the topic and even being the first to break the story about Wayland way back in 2008. With that said, here's the interesting bits from the notes:

- The Linaro project is interested in seeing the Wayland Display Server work there and on the ARM architecture.
- It should be possible to make an unaccelerated back-end using memory back-ends on ARM. The EGL back-end should also function with some work (currently it requires page-flipping and an un-ratified EGL extension).
