Filed under
Software

For those not satisfied by RandR 1.2 or just wish to live on the cutting-edge of X.Org developments (like us), this week on the X.Org mailing list has been a discussion among driver developers surrounding RandR 1.3. RandR 1.3 is the next update to the Resize and Rotate (RandR) extension that allows for resizing, rotating, and reflecting of the X screen. With the RandR 1.2 update it had introduced display hot-plugging support. When it comes to features, RandR 1.3 is most notably expected to introduce GPU object support. This GPU object support is another layer between the X screen and the CRTCs. Ultimately, this should allow multiple GPUs to be merged into a single X screen.
