Development on OpenWFD just started less than two weeks ago and there haven't been any public announcements of the work yet, but Anzwix has already latched onto the interesting work. OpenWFD seeks to be an implementation of the WiFi Display Standard and Miracast technologies, which basically are a standard equivalent to "wireless HDMI cables."

David Herrmann, the open-source Linux graphics developer of fame for working to kill CONFIG_VT via work on numerous projects and many other open-source contributions, has started a new open-source project.
Phoronix: MiracleCast: Miracast / WiFi Displays Come To Linux
For months now David Herrmann has been working on a new project known as OpenWFD for open-source WiFi displays on Linux. OpenWFD is an open-source implementation of the WiFi Display Standard / Miracast.
Within the next few months, the Wi-FI Alliance will launch the Miracast wireless display certification program. It enables devices such as televisions, phones, tablets, and computer monitors to share their displays wirelessly. According to NVIDIA, they are not only supporting it, they are embracing it.
At the Open Technology Institute (OTI), we've been working on opening our user feedback process as a way to improve our internal processes and collaboration, engage our user community more, promote non-developer contributions, and think more broadly about how open source process plays a role in the Commotion Wireless project, a free and open-source communication tool that uses
The M9 release of the Ubuntu Dual Boot Installer adds new features for installing Canonical's open source Linux OS on tablets, phones and other mobile devices. Dual-booting Canonical's Ubuntu Linux and Android on tablets and smartphones has moved a small step closer to reality with the release of a new version of the Ubuntu Dual Boot Installer.
On my Nexus 4 et 5, the wireless display is working well with a simple Miracast adapter (I use a Tronsmart T1000) to duplicate the mobile screen to my TV.
Now I'd like to develop an application that would use this wireless display to send something else than the pure duplication of the screen display. Something like some games you can find on an iPad using AirPlay.
