The Android Back-End For Wayland's Weston
As a sign the support may soon be merged, the patches needed for having an Android back-end for Wayland and the reference Weston compositor were published on the mailing list.
Just last week I wrote about Wayland's Weston now running on Android after weeks of work by Pekka Paalanen, an employee of Collabora. Yesterday an email hit the Wayland development list with the title of "Add Android backend" as part of a set of five patches from Pekka.
Below is the patch description for the Weston Android back-end.
The Android backend provides basic EGL/GLES2 graphics, where everything is always composited. Overlays are not used. Input is stubbed, therefore there is no input yet.
