Wayland clipboard and drag & drop
Since a couple of people asked me for a #hikari screencast I recorded one. It's pretty informal since I'm not good with this super polished talking style. I hope you get something out of it anyway 😺 Thanks to @tauli for the post-production magic 👍 #FreeBSD #Linux #wayland https://hikari.acmelabs.space/videos/hikari.mp4
@stick Ahah ! I was bored and needed a name… :P
@314 Thanks for the heads-up! Rich fixed it :)

How the IME looks like
@wolf480pl Not sure it'd be that noticeable. If you can change the refresh rate by 15Hz each frame it would only take a few frames to do the full range. Would need to experiment.
@sir But then instead of writing your program you write complicated types. Not great.
@wolf480pl Failure modes?
@wolf480pl Both options are workarounds really. The first one just pushes the workaround to the clients.

Put together a simple DRM client to get display timing information out of the kernel: https://github.com/emersion/drm_monitor
@Zurdo Some FreeSync monitors flicker when the refresh rate changes too rapidly. I'd like to know if anyone has this issue.
Sway users who have a VRR-capable monitor & GPU: I'd be interested if you could try this patch out and report back if you experience flickering.
