Previous message (by thread): [PATCH v2 0/6] Add support for atomic async page-flips Messages sorted by: [ date ] [ thread ] [ subject ] [ author ] This is the official release for Weston 11.0.0. Highlights for this release: - Continued work on color management infrastructure: In Weston 11, if you enable the tentative, experimental and WIP color management option, Weston will not only blend in linear light, but you can also set up a monitor ICC profile and Weston will do some kind of color mapping from sRGB to that profile. Furthermore, you can configure a monitor into HDR mode and deliver HDR characteristics from weston.ini to the monitor, but Weston will *not* produce proper HDR content yet, meaning the display is incorrect. - Various RDP improvements. - Performance improvements in the DRM backend. - Support for the wp_single_pixel_buffer_v1 protocol. - weston_buffer refactoring. - Groundwork for running multiple backends at the same time (e.g. KMS + RDP) and for multi-GPU support in the DRM backend. This is not supported yet, but may be in a future release. Breaking changes for users: - The cms-static and cms-colord plugins are now deprecated. - A number of features have been removed from desktop-shell: multiple workspaces, zoom, exposay. - wl_shell support has been removed (superseded by xdg-shell). - The fbdev backend has been removed (superseded by KMS). - weston-launch and launcher-direct have been removed (superseded by libseat). - The weston-info and weston-gears clients have been removed (weston-info is superseded by wayland-info). - The KMS max-bpc property is now set by default. If you experience black screens with (faulty) monitors, try lowering it in weston.ini. - Weston will now abort when running out of memory. Weston is not suitable for memory constrained environments.
