Phoronix: Mir Got An Important Rendering Performance Fix
The latest revision to Mir features an important performance fix...
Is Cononical paying you to make Mir seem like a godsend to linux users? You're converting it way too much making Mir seem like a big deal and you keep only showing how "amazing" it is.
Mir is Ubuntu only, it does not affect any other distro so why try and make it seem like a good thing? Its getting annoying to be honest...
Mir is Linux news. This is a Linux news site. Go figure.
Actually, I think you'll find the reason is because Mir stories are click-bait and so are good for ad revenue. You may or may not like that, but it keeps the site alive.
I don't think anybody reading Phoronix is going to change their opinion on Mir based on what Michael posts anyway.
It's pretty funny when in the comments of one article people say Michael is biased against Mir, and in another they say he's biased in favour of it
Sounds more like a design flaw than a bug
Yeah, Michael wouldn't keep posting these articles unless they were bringing in the ad money. If people stopped caring, so would he.

Or will that have nothing to render now? I'm guessing in mobile you might not even want that because of the power use, but in desktop you might very well want to keep it, at least as an option.

Weston has had this capability for a long time.
If a surface is partially hidden, Weston will only draw the visible part of the surface (and obviously will redraw it only if the surface is damaged).
How come, was there any non-working code to handle this or was it implemented after the bug report ?
