    Default Wayland

    Looking forward to the improved Wayland support.

    I wish Qt would use XCB instead xlib though.

    Qt 5 already uses XCB. One thing that applications need to do when porting from Qt 4 to 5 is stop using xlib (or so I have understood).

    Wow, sweet!

    Because I think I've heard before that GTK and Qt just ignored XCB and kept using xlib because they had such messy code with so many hacks to workaround issues in xlib.

    Hearing Qt use XCB is great!
    I wish GTK would use XCB too...

    That was true in Qt4 apps, but with Qt5 now everyone is having to port to use XCB.

    That's the main set of work going into KWin right now, is porting to XCB so that the eventual Qt5 port can start - which will then lead into Wayland support.

    I am pretty sure Qt uses XCB (at least 5.x).

    A set of Classes to do a small number of things "directly with X11" - things which are currently difficult, or impossible to do through XCB.
