Xorg: Future graphics technologies

Registered by Rick Spencer on 2009-04-16

This will be an open discussion with Intel to go over current and future technologies in the pipeline. We will be discussing both upcoming technologies that will be seen in Karmic, as well as longer range technology goals that we may want to start thinking about in terms of impact through to the next LTS. Intel graphics will be the specific focus for this talk, but topics will likely be highly applicable to other graphics hardware as well.

 * Switching -intel to use UXA / DRI2 / KMS.
   + Hot bugs
   + Expected regressions/mis-features
   + Testing techniques
   + Contingency planning - Reversion?
 * Longer range technologies to expect
   + Benefits
   + Requirements
   + Estimates for when will be available for testers, and then for general usage
 * Kernel/X wishlist
 * Demo Wayland

Outputs:

 * Informational specification outlining our current forecast of coming X technology changes
