General Graphics Interface Project (GGI) is coming to improve Linux Graphics
Steffen Seeger: I am working with the General Graphics Interface Project (GGI). The GGI Project is developing a suite of libraries, that should allow applications to output graphics using a common Application Programming Interface no matter what the actual underlying mechanism (target) is. For instance, you can run GGI applications directing output to an X window, but also run the same application fullscreen using output to SVGAlib, frame buffer devices etc. I am mainly working on design and implementation of the Kernel Graphics Interface (KGI), a part of GGI. KGI should provide the neccessary Operating System services to allow several applications to share the graphics hardware safely. Read about it here.
