    There's no offical timeline. You can follow the developement of KWin by reading Martin's Blog.

    I would assume that it will come with KDE Workspaces 5.0 that is probably going to be released in the next 1,5 years.

    There is article about KDE on Wayland somewhere here on Phoronix.

    i automatically filter and ignore any KDE article unless it contains the string 'a complete re-write of konsole from the ground up in a clean room'.

    i'm running 4.6.5 (although these problems have persisted from version to version). e.g. "show in the menu" setting for profiles is lost from invocation to invocation. i have to go through my list of 40 or so every time i start it and re-enable them. what exactly are bookmarks for? they seem completely useless. there are bugs in the terminal handling (exposed by my use of 'tmux') that don't exist in any other terminal emulator (gnome terminal, xterm, rvxterm, etc). it's a sad joke. my sense is not that the developer/maintainer was/is lame but rather *no* time is focused on what has to be the core piece of KDE used by a devloper or sysadmin.

    Yeah, and Martin detailed on his blog why most of the information in that article is either wrong or at least giving wrong impressions.

    these bugs have been reported over and over and over... hence the comment that there is no interest in this component.

    The real question is what is 'right' with it. The answer would be 'nothing'.

    It looks like 4.10 will be just as dull as 4.9! The big things are happening in gnome and unity land. Looking aside from the vocal few here at phoro most is realizing KDEs time is up.

    KDE is losing its spot as Major Desktop to Unity. Greatest Phail since KDE4 if you ask me. LoL
