Chromium On Wayland Keeps Advancing, Works On Tizen IVI
Intel's Ozone-Wayland project that allows the Chrome/Chromium web-browser and other Google Ozone-based software projects to run natively on Wayland continues being improved. New features have been added to this abstracted input / window handling layer for Wayland and there's now also support for running on Tizen IVI.
The new release is based on Chromium 34 and has bug-fixes, stability fixes, and feature enhancements. The new features are support for window resizing and to also maximize the window. Drag and drop support is still missing as are dialogs. This release currently targets Wayland/Weston 1.3 and was tested on Intel Mesa 10.0.
Details on this week's Ozone-Wayland update can be found on 01.org from Intel. There was also a mailing list update sent to the Wayland-devel list about these Ozone-Wayland improvements and now having the ability to run the Chromium Browser on Tizen IVI, the Tizen-based Linux distribution by Intel for in-vehicle infotainment systems.
Here's a video showing off the new Ozone-Wayland work:
