Wayland Gains Client/Server-Side Language Bindings
Wayland has gained support for client and server-side programming language bindings.
In work done by Jason Ekstrand, Wayland now has support for server-side language bindings and client-side language bindings to allow for better interaction with Wayland via different programming languages.
Ekstrand's commit message describes the work (that's similar on both the client and server sides) as:
1. Adding a wl_resource_set_dispatcher function that corresponds to wl_resource_set_interface. The only difference between the two functions is that the new version takes a dispatcher along with the implementation, data, and destructor. This allows for runtime calling of native language functions for callbacks instead of having to generate function pointers.
The work was merged to Wayland Git master today making the language bindings a feature of Wayland 1.3.
