    Phoronix: ADWC: A Tiling Window Manager For Wayland

    There's now the first tiling manager for Wayland. Called ADWC, this open-source tiling manager can already start applications using XWayland. There's some videos showing off this Weston fork, including the Opera web-browser and KDE's KWrite running on Wayland...

    Very nice make sure it mimics notion (ion3) behaviour, hard to beat wm.

      KWin's main developer, Martin Grasslin, had said he stopped the KWin - Wayland effort because of lack of a stable release. Now that the stable release is imminent, he sure will return to the work.

        Nice seeing Wayland targeted projects turning up in the wild already, both a testament to it attracting interest and that it's maturing very quickly.

          What stable release are we talking about? 0.85 or something newer?

            I am not sure, if 0.85 is considered stable or beta. I was cautious here.

              I believe Martin Grlin's complaint was that there wasn't any release of Wayland, and developing against Wayland master with its constant protocol changes was... challenging. So yes, I think 0.85 would qualify here. It's quite a lot more stable than master.

              I don't think 0.85 has officially been called stable / beta / alpha / etc. anywhere, but it's pretty stable.
