Enlightenment 0.19 Alpha was just tagged as the very latest desktop / window manager work that includes improved Wayland support for E19.

Enlightenment 0.19 Alpha features improved Wayland support, a tiling profile has been added, the tiling module rework has landed, support for the new X PRESENT extension for reducing compositing overhead, the E16-style live pager has returned, and the new compositor code has landed.

At Phoronix we have already covered at length about Enlightenment's Wayland support and how it can now act as its own compositor. Other information on the E19 improvements have also been covered.

The change-log for the very exciting Enlightenment 0.19 Alpha can be found via this Git commit, with the commit message simply reading "IT'S HAPPENING."
