The Path To The Wayland-Based Hawaii 0.3.0 Desktop
The Hawaii 0.3.0 desktop is coming soon and written in Qt5 and will work against Wayland's Weston 1.4 compositor.
Hawaii 0.3.0 has a plug-in that's been ported to Weston 1.4, the Hawaii Shell has been improved with better multi-screen management, multiple panels are now supported, some major code refactoring happened, optional support for screensavers, on-the-fly layout switching, and many other enhancements. Hawaii is interesting for its use of Qt5 from the ground-up and being designed only with Wayland in mind rather than X11 or Mir.
Last week I wrote about upcoming features and plans for the Hawaii desktop while today Pier Luigi Fiorini of the Maui Project has blogged more about the 0.3.0 release details.
