GNOME/GTK On Wayland Gains Focus At GUADEC
Written by Michael Larabel in GNOME on 30 July 2014 at 01:03 AM EDT. 2 Comments
GTK+ and GNOME Wayland support were frequent focal discussion points at this year's GUADEC -- GNOME's annual conference -- for getting rid of X11.

At GUADEC 2014 this week Matthias Clasen talked up GTK+ improvements, Jasper St.Pierre talked up GNOME Wayland work, and other work of interest to Phoronix readers. Jasper St.Pierre specifically talked about X11 security issues and limitations and other problems.

While I wasn't out at GUADEC this year and without rattling about the usual information most Phoronix-reading Wayland-fans already know, if you're interested in the information covered about these topics from this year's GNOME developer conference, see this excellent posting with all the detailed summaries.
