For those interested, the video of Keith Packard's presentation at DebConf 2018 is now available to view.

DebConf is the annual Debian Developer’s Conference that's being held this year in Hsinchu, Taiwan that started on July 29th and it will end on August 5th.

It's not exactly new information, but it's a rather nice roundup along with some insights from Packard on his work. I always love hearing his talks, he's a really great speaker and always makes it so clear and interesting.

Neat. Sad it takes at least until Ubuntu 19.04 or 19.10 to see the stutter-fixes, regardless of when those are actually implemented.

Very interesting! And I hope we'll see these "fast paths" for non-VR rendering soon ;)

Very interesting talk, although the only topic with any substance was the stuttering situation. Really looking forward to this (r)evolution!
