I told you so, 2016 edition!

For those not understanding the reference. Whenever GNOME, Plasma or Unity have a vulnerability in their lock screen implementation the author of xscreensaver does a blog post called "I told you so" (e.g. https://www.jwz.org/blog/2015/04/i-told-you-so-again/ ). Basically saying that everybody except him is not able to implement a secure lock screen. And here we are: a vulnerability in xscreensaver. So finally I can do: I told you so!

That used to be Android's security model up until not long ago, what can go wrong? :)

Liebe +Unitymedia, vielleicht wollt ihr für ein tolles Jahr 2016 lernen, wie man emails mit korrektem Encoding versendet?

Of course not (and IIRC, MS abandonned Outlook). And if you don't forward your spam I will always praise you. :-)

Looking forward to use real drivers on my raspberry Pi.
 
Thank you +Eric Anholt for your good work and status update!

It is good to see, as drivers for desktop GPUs years before, that open source SoC GPUs are becoming the norm too!

" Every step of the way is misery to get the code merged, and I would give up a lot to never work on the Linux kernel again." :(

Think this makes sense from a ux perspective when you consider how VR is hitting the market soon as well. Saving and restoring a game session might make more sense than alt-tabbing between windows. Goal should be to have game-session in foreground while playing and desktop session in foreground when not playing. Saving state of game session so that you are plopped straight back where you where without having the game use resources while in desktop mode and desktop use resources while in game mode.

Looks good! If the X11 application would show the icon I would not be able to recognize which one is X11 and which one is Wayland.

+Henry Miller I don't know, what you don't want. I also don't know if I should care, and if I should, then why?

This is just awesome. A few years ago I got myself an rpi and tried to get KWin working and maximum was one frame before crash. And now it just works without a single line of rpi specific code
 
My TV seems to be tripping on some plamsalicious pi's with a side of Wayland ;)

+Shervin Emami​ no, you can probably get the same driver to work on the zero, but youll need to recompile it against v6

Closer to useable: server-side decoration in KWin/Wayland and Plasma's QPT plugin.
As a kind of Christmas present to our Wayland users I’m happy to announce that over the last two weeks I worked on adding support for server-side decorations. The main motivations for working…

Have you ever considered porting KDE to Mir as an experiment?

First ever Wayland related fixes in a stable release update! Includes a fix to the problem that the Plasma/Wayland session froze on startup.

Returning to our "spot what's new" section. New feature hopefully coming soon to KWin/Wayland.

+Алексей Рочев well what GNOME supports or doesn't is pretty much irrelevant for us. This has nothing to do with Qt either. It's not a feature implemented in Qt, we'll add support for SSD in our (Plasma's) platform theme QPT plugin. We'll draft a spec for that and will propose it so that everybody can implement it. Alternatively toolkits might provide us hooks to provide custom specific code like Qt does.
