X11, Window Managers Trolltech's Zack Rusin today introduced Glucose on Freedesktop Xorg mailing list. Glucose is a new "OpenGL based acceleration architecture" that "uses XGL code". It does not require any change on the drivers side, except a call to glucoseDriverInit.

Yeah, how is Xegl going btw? Any progress?
I'm one of those who really think Xegl is the way to go, instead of glue on top of glue on top of glue on top of old X.
I have nothing against old X and the work put into AIGLX and Glucose etc, on the contrary, it's just that I think for bleeding edge machines it would be far better to just simply replace all that stuff with Xegl.. But I don't have all the info, hell I hardly have any, so all I have to go on is what I've read about the different approaches. So I may very well be completely wrong..
