KDE's KWin On Wayland Is Progressing For 5.1 Release
Martin Gräßlin shared that work on KDE's KWin window manager for supporting Wayland is back to happening at full-speed.
Following the recent Plasma 5.0 release, the German Linux developer is back to working on Wayland support and for the KWin 5.1 release will be the premiere of the kwin_wayland binary to complement the kwin_x11 binary of KWin 5.0. Of course, how much of KDE will be able to run on Wayland by that time and exactly how far the support will be remains to be seen, but there should be a clearer picture in the months ahead.
There's a lot of work ahead with Wayland support for KWin and also on developing the kdecoration2 component while Martin provided a very brief update via his blog. Martin will be providing a formal update on KWin next month at Akademy 2014.
