The Linux kernel graphics and display subsystems have recently been at the center of deep scrutiny. From new framework proposals to support panels and encoders in embedded systems to the upcoming “battle of the display servers” between X.org, Wayland and Mir, many developers have turned their attention to how Linux handles graphics and display hardware. The kernel needs to ensure more than ever that it offers adequate APIs that can support the needs of both desktop and embedded hardware.
The graphics and display microconference will gather DRM/KMS, FBDEV and V4L2 developers to discuss and agree on how to make the three subsystems evolve in a coordinated way and get ready for the next generation of both hardware and applications.
Additional graphics-related topics will also be discussed during the Android and Graphics slot.
The schedule of the 2013 Graphics and Display Microconference is as follows. Note presentation slides can be found on the Plumbers page by following the links to the abstracts:
