More KDE Applications Will Now Work On Wayland
The KWindowSystem framework that interactions with the desktop's windowing system has been refactored to be more versatile and can now support Wayland alongside X11 on Linux.
Martin Gräßlin has spent some time recently improving KWindowSystem so that it works on Wayland in a similar manner to X11. The only problem now though is the work has broke the back-end for Windows and OS X and Martin won't be fixing those back-ends and hope other teams will take care of it prior to the KDE Frameworks 5 release.
