    Default Compiz Support For Multi-Pointer X

    Phoronix: Compiz Support For Multi-Pointer X

    In May we shared that Multi-Pointer X (or MPX for short) was entering the mainline X server. While it was merged to master that month, X Server 1.5 was already branched out and therefore it won't appear in X.Org 7.4, but it will appear in X Server 1.6 (X.Org 7.5) until next year. While it's now in the mainline branch, Peter Hutterer, the chief developer of MPX, hasn't stopped there...

    I just posted this over at forum.compiz-fusion.org in the Core Dvelopment forum. Hopefully someone cares enough to do something with it!

    Like I said over there, with the Nvidia system-on-a-chip coming that has been proven to play Quake III and small enough for handheld devices, I see this announcement as a huge boon to Compiz if they (the Core dev's) decide to use it.

    Default Input Redirection ?

    man, I hate acronyms!

    Does IR mean Infra-Red in this context or Input Redirection? I thought the latter.
