Wayland 1.5 Release Candidate Is Out There
The first version 1.5 release candidates of Wayland and the Weston compositor are now available.
Kristian Høgsberg announced today the first release candidates for Wayland/Weston 1.5. Kristian noted, "We're at a historic low in terms of open bugs - as of this writing we have 15 bugs in wayland/weston bugzilla. There are a few more bugs we can fix and I expect more will come in as we start testing, but right now it's looking pretty good."
A second release candidate of Wayland/Weston 1.5 is expected in about one week and then release Wayland 1.5 and Weston 1.5 in the following week. If everything goes really well and in fact bug-free, Wayland/Weston 1.5 could be released next week!
Kristian mentioned these details within the Wayland-devel list.
Wayland/Weston 1.5 features the new XWayland DDX support, full-screen shell protocol, libinput support, and a ton of other changes over the past ~3 months of development. Look for Wayland 1.5 later this month!
