    Default Weston's Wayland Back-End Gets More Features

    Phoronix: Weston's Wayland Back-End Gets More Features

    The Wayland back-end to Wayland's Weston compositor that allows for it to run inside existing compositors (i.e. nested compositing) has seen another round of improvements...

    The Wayland back-end to Wayland's Weston, which uses Wayland, so that Weston can run in Wayland as a Wayland-compositor called Weston...

    While I often find many of wayland's/weston's new/improved features (compared to X11) to be cool, I've found a good chunk of them to be really gimmicky. This, however is not gimmicky. xephyr and xnest are the closest alternatives and to put it bluntly, they suck. You're better off doing a local VNC, which is a lot more of a pain to set up. It won't surprise me if wayland/weston did a much better job implementing this.

    I'm getting pretty excited for the next KDE frameworks, assuming it will properly support wayland right from the start.

    Default Good news!

    Nice to see this improvement. It will be useful :-)

    Obs.: I cannot wait for put Wayland on my Gentoo machine (I think I'll use KDE for this)

    Haha, lol! Now this is good, funny trolling. Being snarky but not going overboard with it, well done!
