Wayland/Weston 1.0.4 Released; Per-Output Workspaces
Phoronix: Wayland/Weston 1.0.4 Released; Per-Output Workspaces
Wayland 1.0.4 was released this week along with an adjoining update to its Weston reference compositor. Separately, a new patch-set has emerged for supporting per-output workspaces...
"Per-Output Workspaces" YEESSS!!!!!!!!
if they release wayland more often it might help with porn addiction for many people.
So what is per-output workspaces?
Im guessing, in a multi-monitor setup every monitor can have its own set of workspaces. 4 workspaces per screen + 2 screens gives you 8 workspaces

Can't wait until 14.10 when Ubuntu should use Wayland as default (my opinion), Compiz drives me crazy.
Hm, I'm not sure how exactly per output workspaces would work..
I mean, imagine dragging a window so that it's halves are on both outputs,
then switch workspaces on the first/second output. Which output workspace
does the window belong to??
Also, while I guess this could be very helpful to some people, I personally really like
having one big virtual screen where all monitors share workspaces. When I set up
each workspace for a specific task/program, I use all monitors for maximum efficiency,
and so I really appreciate the ability to quickly switch between tasks, even with two monitors.
But to each their own I guess.
For this case specifically, I suppose the window will stay in the workspace(s) it were before just not appear on the screen that changed workspace?
