News Reel: Wayland @ XDC2013!

Well, its official, The X.Org Foundation announced support for the Wayland display server Protocol.  Wayland is an alternative window server, much like our beloved X Server, but provides methods for compositing windowing managers to communicate directly with applications an video hardware, and in return those applications are expected to communicate with input hardware using other libraries.

People behind the project aim to provide a much simpler and more efficient approach that the existing X Server.  More competition to X Server the better!  This is exactly why Open Source/ Free software excels at fostering better applications and tools than other Operating Systems.  Seeing is believing.

So where exactly can you find information on this?  See below for more.  Till next time…
