Ozone-Wayland

Ozone-Wayland is the implementation of Chromium's Ozone for supporting Wayland graphics system. Ozone is a set of 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. Different projects based on Chromium/Blink, like the Chrome browser, ChromeOS, among others, can now be enabled using Wayland.

Description

This Project Provides: window system management source code

The Value of the Ozone-Wayland Project

Ozone-Wayland is the implementation of Chromium's Ozone for supporting Wayland graphics system. Ozone is a set of 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. Different projects based upon Chromium/Blink like the Chrome browser, ChromeOS and others can now be enabled using Wayland.

Wayland is a protocol created for the newly emerging embedded systems that don’t require legacy PC libraries for graphics window display management. It’s light and efficient for architects who want a flexible, modular system to create display solutions on any other platform.

Wayland Chrome is specifically targeted to Chromium projects and used by browser, system builder and independent software developers.

Who It’s For

Operating system vendors like Red Hat and Google can use Ozone-Wayland. It’s available through open source to all systems and device builders.

Project Specifics

Ozone-Wayland is distributed under the BSD license and is written in the C++ programming language. Find more information on the Chromium site or chat with us directly on the Ozone -Wyland IRC channel: freenode.net, #ozone-wayland channel.

About Intel Involvement

Intel leads the Ozone-Wayland effort, working closely with Google, the GENIVI automotive consortia and many others to ensure this graphics system supports the latest usages, as well as the latest features in Intel Architecture. Ozone-Wayland is optimized through open source for Intel® Atom™ processors and Intel® Core™ processors.
