      The new estimate of delivery for f.lux, night mode, and monitor calibration on Windows 10 Creators Update onwards is for release 9.0, planned before the end of 2018. When a 9.0 Alpha or Beta is issued, you will be able to try the feature on products based on the DL-3000, DL-5000 and DL-6000 series ASICs.

      f.lux has enabled some support for DisplayLink indirect displays (Windows 10)
      You can download f.lux from https://justgetflux.com/

      I also voted for the MacOS feature to support Night Shift. Since DisplayLink supports both Windows and Mac, I would certainly hope that you would take into consideration supporting Night Shift on Mac if you also add f.lux support in Windows. Or if you prefer to support f.lux as a whole, support f.lux in Mac as well, in which case I could use f.lux instead of Night Shift.

        I'm running MacOS High Sierra on a mid-2012 MacBook Pro. I've got dual Samsung 24" curved monitors on each side. One is connected using a mini-DisplayPort to HDMI adapter; the second is connected using an Insignia USB 3.0 to HDMI adapter. The latter utilizes the DisplayLink chipset, and therefore the DisplayLink driver. After installing the driver and rebooting, it seemed my two Samsung monitors didn't look quite right. I adjusted the brightness of the second monitor to match the first, and it still wasn't right. I then realized that Night Shift was enabled. I temporarily disabled it, and both external monitors were identical. I re-enabled Night Shift, and only the built-in laptop display and one external monitor (attached to the mini-DisplayPort to HDMI) changed to the warmer colors, while the DisplayLink-attached monitor stayed in its normal (non-Night Shift) state. This is quite distracting! I would like all of my displays to be in Night Shift as appropriate. As a workaround, I can turn off Night Shift (temporarily), but ideally I would really like to be able to use Night Shift and have it available on all my displays.
