Wayland 1.6 and GNOME 3.14 are shaping up to be a great couple with this next major Linux desktop release featuring Wayland support out-of-the-box.

Jasper St. Pierre of the GNOME camp has blogged about the ongoing GNOME work and how the Wayland 1.6 window recently opened and should be released a few weeks prior to GNOME 3.14, in late September. Work is still going on to improve the XDG-Shell for replacing wl_shell, GNOME/Wayland developers are collaborating with other open-source desktops over their Wayland support, and other important work is progressing.

For those wishing to learn more about the very latest GNOME Wayland work happening, read Jasper's latest blog post.
