    E people have accounts in Phoronix so they might chime in and answer questions.








    I was wrong in the other topic and thought all the word done by devilhorns was for a standalone compositor.

    i really like to know if E19 is going to have full Wayland Support and seeing how it look's like E18 missed the Window for Full Wayland

    "Enlightenment 0.18

    Complete support for rendering Wayland Client applications inside the existing X11 Compositor
    Provides a Wayland Shell for use by Wayland Client applications
    Current work is progressing toward a Wayland-Only version "


    or if it's going to be E18 looks like we're going to get HL3 around the time of E19 seeing how the release date was 2023 for E18

    They're implementing everything the wayland protocol has going. It's just that it's currently missing stuff like de-fullscreen and minimizing... I suppose once the library has it, it will be literally a matter of a dozen lines of code to implement and release a point release for. Assuming nothing unusual happens of course...

    Personally, I've always assumed the reason the wayland devs are holding off on those "features" is because they want them done client side. Minimizing for instance is just treating the desktop like a regular window and placing it over other windows. Not too sure about fullscreen anymore... But I see nothing has really been done in weston regarding those problems so beats me...

    What i conclude is that features are hold back because the people behind it don't care much about the desktop. It doesn't seem to be a priority to get rid of X as "fast" as possible.

    This, or they're intentionally holding back key features to ensure masses don't see Wayland before it's fully baked.
