It looks like 4.10 will be just as dull as 4.9! The big things are happening in gnome and unity land. Looking aside from the vocal few here at phoro most is realizing KDEs time is up.
KDE is losing its spot as Major Desktop to Unity. Greatest Phail since KDE4 if you ask me. LoL
There's a special branch of KDE called "Plasma Active", specially engineered for touchscreen devices, with all the "groundbreaking enhancements". That is the foundation of "KDE 5". So, wait, and enjoy.
bogus crtc_bounds() calls, xrandr --panning and xorg.conf virtual
Are they ever going to fix all of those bogus crtc_bounds() calls that basically destroy
one's ability to use "xrandr --fb=.. --panning" or virtual displays larger than the
physical display in "xorg.conf" ?"
It's well-known. It's been reported. It's a near show-stopper as far as I'm concerned.
Which is sad.
