    Phoronix: Clutter/Cogl Running On Wayland Master

    The Clutter tool-kit and Cogl (Clutter's OpenGL component) have been updated to work against the latest Wayland Display Server code-base...

    Yay for that

    Thanks to Intel for choosing Clutter as preferred testing platform for Wayland. GTK+ is next.

    Microsoft, Nokia, Digia or some other commercial software dudes may deal with the Qt stuff. LOL.

      in the video you can see a chrome icon on the wayland panel

      does this mean they are working on it or that it runs on WL???

        Who knows? Considering that Wayland protocol supports X11, it may mean literally everything. My bet is that Chrome was used to test the compatibility.

          This screenshot shows chrome running in wayland using the Aura window manager. Aura is -according to the webernets- a WM that will be used in Chrome OS.

          What runs through what (ie X on WL etc) and if Aura supports WL i have no idea.

            What does MX stand for? (He said he's working on Gtk & MX now).

              It seems you're anti Qt troll. Qt is working on Wayland if you're not aware. Gtk is pure crap compared to Qt.

                  Thanks, I did google for "MX" but it issued a lot of useless stuff.

                    For someone who uses another person for being a troll, you seemed to have descended below civil discourse as well and IMO in a worse way. GTK is a Free and open source software toolkit, developed together by several vendors and volunteers, requires no copyright assignment to a single vendor and is the foundation for several different desktop environments and applications. Even if you value Qt a whole lot more, competition and diversity of approaches is valuable. Let's not engage in trash talking.

                      GTK is free of charge AND free for contributors in terms of license symmetry. You dont get that with Qt where you HAVE to assign your work(money, sweat and love for free software) to a comercial entity like Nokia. And Nokia equals Microsoft strategic partner and patent warmongering.

                      Well excuse me for being for free software and against foul play for evil vendors. bad-mouthing Microsoft, unfairness and patents is by no means trolling. It is simply the way it is around here.

                        Your belief of somehow supporting free and open source software by spreading FUD is not only stupid but also harmful to the "open source spirit".

                          Say the same the one who attacked Qt. Qt is also Free and open source software toolkit. Btw. You're biased.

                            Maybe this will surprise you, but I'd like to see them both dead. We don't have to worry about Qt much, because it will always stay Free and it can be always forked.

                            You're not for free software by attacking Qt. Thanks to Qt and KDE, Free Desktop environments are usable. There's also XFCE, but it doesn't have support it deserves. If you want to attack MS then support Qt, because it's something that stops pro MS mono.

                              KDE is unusable for me, it is "pretty and candy" but its unusable on debian based stuff. GTK is not crap, you are crap if you say so about free software, that you use everyday, and didnt even know you do.
