The Free Society Conference and Nordic Summit (FSCONS) is a meeting place for social change, focused on the future of free software and free society. The conference brings together people from a wide range of fields, and merges the technical with the social, seeking both to activate and challenge. Open discussion and brainstorming are as important as the talks given during the conference.

Preparing GNU Xnee 3.06 (and testing new XI2 features)

It’s been a while since the RECORD problems was found. Anyhow, now they’re solved (in Xorg) and GNU Xnee is now working as it should (given you’re using CVS HEAD and the latest Xorg server). I’ll start preparing a GNU Xnee 3.06 right away.

If you’re checking out the branch: xinput2-support ( ) you should be able to see the latest happenings when it comes to supporting XInput Extension (especially multiple input devices). I’ve just finished testing 8 (faked using swinput) faked “mouses”. Some 300 000 events were sent and all went fine so we’re actually making some progress here as well.
