February was mostly about working on this blog.

You can read more about it here.

This month we also ported the screencast program to GStreamer, in place of GStreamerQt that has been abandoned.

The app now uses the portal API to start the screencast session, this means that it will work with any other desktop environment with a portal implementation.

Meanwhile, our portal implementation has been improved and can now make screencasts without CPU effort using DMA-BUFs.

eglfs had to be changed to support passing file descriptors to the compositor, that now implements the wlr-export-dmabuf-unstable-v1 protocol from wlroots.
