      Agreed. If the compression technology is too proprietary to be released, then make 2 separate modules, one proprietary to load the compression algorithms, one open source so that kernel developers can easily port the module and update with each new kernel, while the compression algorithm remains closed source and proprietary. That way is best of both worlds.

        Work for Wayland has now started. The development is now focusing on working with upstream to extend GNOME’s compositor, Mutter, to support hot-pluggable secondary displays, which will allow DisplayLink drivers to work with GNOME on Wayland.

        The GNOME release that is likely to include the necessary changes would be the next stable release, 3.32.

        Wayland is not just a thing now, it's pretty much the default path of the majority of distributions for all recent laptops.

        You should port DisplayLink to Wayland or this technology will become irrelevant.
