Commits today to Wayland's Weston compositor improve the touch event situation.
The basic infrastructure was added to Weston today for handling touch events within Wayland's "toytoolkit", a sample tool-kit implementation used by Wayland/Weston for showing off a reference implementation and basic functionality.
Aside from putting in the basic touch handler infrastructure, touch support was added to Weston's smoke example, the calibrator application now has touch support, and there's touch support for panel launcher icons.
Today's Weston touch support work was done by Rusty Lynch at Intel. The commits can be viewed via the Weston Git log
