This weekend I prepared my slides for next weeks talk at Akademy about the mobile edition of KWin. I will talk about the reasons why we need a KWin mobile edition and why that will also benefit the desktop edition of KWin. For those who are not that familiar with KWin’s Compositing stack I will explain how the system works and where and how we can work on the OpenGL ES port. So that requires to illustrate the differences between the various OpenGL versions and what we have to do to get KWin’s codebase compiling on Maemo. As I have not yet started to implement the port (I think 4.5 is currently more important) I will also provide a roadmap on when we will see the pieces hitting trunk.
As my talk has a very special time slot I prepared a KWin effect on Friday evening for the talk. It’s a small but useful effect for the purpose and took me only about one hour to implement it and a nice effect to illustrate KWin’s flexibility, which is of course also part of the talk. Now I don’t want to spoil it, but I think it’s a nice and elegant solution to the problem that my talk collides with the second half of the quarterfinal Germany vs Argentina or Mexico. So please come to my talk and don’t stay in front of the TVs 🙂 I really love football and I can’t remember that I ever missed a German match at a World Cup. Given the way Germany played today, it will be really hard to miss the game. Who btw planned Akademy during World Cup?
