The Wayland LiveCD has been updated against the new Wayland/Weston 1.2 release. This Linux LiveCD also ships with the Wayland-enabled GTK3, Qt5, SDL, and Enlightenment EFL tool-kits for easily trying out this next-generation Linux display stack.

The Wayland LiveCD is Rebecca Black OS. This environment that can boot off a CD/DVD/USB features the latest Wayland code plus the Wayland-enabled tool-kits. This is natively running Wayland and not dependent upon an X.Org environment.

More details on the updated Rebecca Black OS Linux distribution can be found in its mailing list announcement and the new ISO can be downloaded from SourceForge.
