Alt-Tab Will Return To Wayland's Weston 1.5
Phoronix: Alt-Tab Will Return To Wayland's Weston 1.5
Alt-tab support was removed from Wayland's Weston compositor last week, but it's set to reappear in the Wayland/Weston 1.5 release in a few months time. New alt-tab code has already been proposed...
Alt-Tab, eh. Some pretty fancy shit they're working on. Perhaps they should shoot the Ubuntu guys an email and ask how it's done in Mir.
You can start now.
As I understand it Mir is completely irrelevant to this since Weston is only a reference compositor for Wayland and not something intended for end-users. Most other compositors already implement their own alt+tab support. But I guess you know this already and are just trying to troll.

Isn't Openbox or Fluxbox ported yet to Wayland?

And DX if you feel like answering.
ALT-TABability-like functionality is my thing. I live by it. Work, games, things nerds watch to ....test VLC with. I like RAM. It's cheap and it does heaps of shit. I get upset when shit doesn't comply.
I doubt they will ever be. They are getting a small commit every two or three months, since at least two years.
