Kristian Høgsberg of Wayland fame has announced Weston for Wayland...

But before getting too excited, however, Weston is just a renaming of the demo Wayland compositor.

In this mailing list post, Kristian outlines his reasons for renamining the sample/demo wayland-compositor to Weston. This mostly comes down to avoiding confusion.

Like Wayland, Weston is also a town in the US state of Massachusetts.

In related news, there's also a lot of clean-up work going on for the Wayland X11 compositor. See this mailing list message.
