@Wolf480pl Ah right, forgot about these. I think they belong to the same feature-set as progress bars, and should probably be part of a separate protocol.

Spent some time working on libliftoff today. I think the next step will be to build a wlroots-based testbed to see how the library works in practice and check that we get actual power savings.

Repaint scheduling has finally been merged in #sway! github.com/swaywm/sway/pull/45 🎉🎉🎉

This allows you to get sub-frame latency from a surface render to presentation (currently with some manual set up), whereas by default what you get is between 1 and 2 frames of latency, closer to 2 for well-behaving fast-rendering surfaces.

@RAOF And indeed, moving the idle-inhibit protocol in stable would be a good idea. wayland-protocols governance FTW!

@RAOF Honestly I don't think it's >95%. A lot of people are running KWin, and Ubuntu doesn't have Wayland by default yet. Also see e.g. pkgstats.archlinux.de/packages (biased, I know, but still).

I'm not a fan of GNOME just closing the issue. They could've said "please send a MR", but they didn't. Instead, they said GNOME won't implement the protocol because… GNOME doesn't implement the protocol (?).
