    Phoronix: Wayland 1.2.0 Released, Joined By Weston Compositor

    That looks good.

    Having 37 contributors speaks for itself!

    I remember some of use guys having a discussion here on phoronix forums about system compositors and if we need them and if weston is such a compositor.

    This might clear things up.

    Now we just need Qt5.2, Mesa 9.2 (forgot why), and well, I don't know if KWin will keep using the Qpainter compositor, that Martin made, but if so, and if KDE 4.12 is based on Qt5.2, then at least KWin in KDE 4.12 is pretty far by Jan/Feb next year, if I've understood everything correctly
    Oh - and EGL-support on proprietary drivers!

    And XWayland merged in XOrg. Without that, you're either stuck with an old X server or you can't run X programs.

    No, you didn't.

    1.) There is no KDE 4.
    2.) No 4.x release of Software Compilation will be based on Qt 5.
    3.) SC 4.11 is the last release featuring Plasma Workspaces components, including KWin.
    4.) The Workspaces parts of SC 4.11 will be supported for 2 years, maybe longer.
    5.) Plasma Workspaces 2 will feature KWin 5.0.
    6.) KWin 5.0 will be the first KWin release fully supporting Wayland.
    7.) PW2 will be released sometime in 2014 but probably not as early as January or February.
    8.) Read Planet KDE to get correct news and you won't misunderstand it all any longer.

    Is logind going to be an integral part?
    If so, won't this detrimentally effect the porting effort of Wayland to FreeBSD and essentially tie it to Linux?

    WOW this is huge! Ubuntu phone will have a very tough competitior. Ubuntu has the market share, now we see if that is enough. Launching with Wayland pretty much finalized my decision to buy a Jolla phone. It will be a historical milestone in the Linux world. Literally the first commercial device using the next gen Linux graphics stack!
