Written by Michael Larabel in Wayland on 25 August 2013 at 11:41 AM EDT. 120 Comments
David Herrmann is on a coding spree this summer. His latest set of ten patches this week provide for device management support using systemd's logind service.

A Wayland session can now request device access through logind's DBus APIs and this work is being done for leading to sane session switching -- complementing David's VT switching blog posts this weekend.

His 10th patch implements generic multi-session support for seats without VT access. All the patches and more details on the work can be found beginning at the start of the patch series.
