Oculus Quest. It’s a cool step forward, no doubt: an all-in-one headset, with touch controllers, inside-out 6DOF tracking, no sensors, no wires, headphones and so on. Neat! I can’t wait to put my hands on it… but, there’s a but: “It runs rift quality experiences”, that’s Zuckerberg’s words. And they’re twice wrong. Rift device runs tethered to a PC, which is a x86 architecture based machine. The Quest will be running on a Snapdragon 8xx processor, which is a mobile processor, SoC architecture.
I’ve wrote an article about the new graphics platform for Chromium called Ozone-GBM. I particularly think that Ozone-GBM will play an important role next in Chromium and Linux graphics communities in general. I hope you enjoy the read :) Please share it. https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/blogs/chromium-ozone-gbm-explained.html
Some state-of-the-art progress of the project we’re proudly working with: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJB2pznc6iY
A few weeks ago we released Ozone-Wayland and now we’d like to detail for you the development process and strategy behind it… ah, and the title is not developing Chromium, the browser; it’s developing Chromium,** the project**! You will understand why next. communities There are three main projects involved in here: Chromium, Wayland and Ozone-Wayland. In Chromium, there is a very big and geek community that mainly produces Chrome browser and Chrome-OS.
The following message was sent out this morning – I’m copying it here and attaching a cute screenshot of my desktop :) Ozone is a set of C++ classes in Chromium for abstracting different window systems on Linux. It provides abstraction for the construction of accelerated surfaces underlying Aura UI framework, input devices assignment and event handling. http://www.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/ozone Today we are launching publicly Ozone-Wayland, which is the implementation of Chromium’s Ozone for supporting Wayland graphics system.
