Phoronix: Alt-Tab Support, Exposay For Wayland's Weston
Interesting in the Wayland camp this week has been lots of discussions about the XDG-Shell proposal but besides that, a patch-set just appeared that finally adds alt-tab support to Wayland's Weston compositor and also updates the exposay feature...
I feel like an idiot. I've been a Linux user for about a dozen years, and pretty good at the command line so keyboard shortcuts should be second nature to me. But thanks to this brief thread I just learned that Alt-Tab does window-switching.
Like that old saying goes, "it was hidden in plain sight."
I figured that was the case. You don't tend to make brutal spelling mistakes like that, in fact, typos are surprisingly rare on this website.
Anyway, its nice seeing weston piecing together so nicely. I'm just wondering though - how much work is left for just wayland? I feel like wayland by itself hasn't got much attention lately. Unless there are some major distros out there that intend to use weston, I really don't see why so much attention is given to it when several DEs intend to support wayland without (to my knowledge) the use of weston.
