XDirectFB is a rootless X Server using DirectFB Windows for X11 toplevel windows. This way the opacity of every application can be adjusted with your mouse wheel. Window movements are initiated by the application or the window manager. The graphical movement is done by DirectFB using the available hardware acceleration. Overlapping toplevel windows does not cause expose events, i.e. redrawing of the window contents, as they are DirectFB windows and therefore have an own surface, or backing store.

Release Notes: This release adds synchronization between X Selection and DirectFB Clipboard, DPMS support, and initial DGA support (keyboard and mouse).

Release Notes: This release includes keyboard-related bugfixes and a small fix to get GNOME2 and KDE working (32bit pixmaps were missing for XRender).
Release Notes: New keyboard handling was implemented, with complete Latin-1 support. This solves several problems which were caused by the abnormal keymap. New features include optional root window support, clean shutdowns, accelerated rectangle filling, and window appearance fixes.
Release Notes: This is a complete rewrite of XDirectFB, derived from XDarwin using the XFree CVS tree.
