Red Hat's Christian Schaller has shared some more information about improvements happening in the GNOME/Fedora Wayland world.

Among the movements around Wayland include the first draft of a Wayland protocol extension for handling Wacom tablets being published, continued work on GNOME application porting to Wayland, challenges around XWayland due to time commitments, etc.

At the end of the day they are still hoping for Fedora 20 to serve as a "Wayland Tech Preview" with GNOME 3.10 while it will not be until Fedora 21 or later when Wayland is attempted by default.

More details can be found in Christian's blog post.
