Post details: The future of X

Apr 22
The future of X

This German article (bad BableFish translation) gives a great overview of what's currently possible using X11, on the field of eye candy. Some of the presented technologies are just technology previews, still nice to see though.

It's some sort of bundle about thingsI blogged about before:
- Xrender and Xdamage (alpha blending)
- Xgl (X server based on OpenGL)
- Luminocity (the wobbling windows, you know...)
- E17

Make sure you check the provided screenshots and demo movies.
