One of the Clutter tool-kit developers has announced a tiny Wayland compositor that was written and it provides support for multiple display emulation. This Wayland compositor is capable of emulating four displays and for now basically serves as a technical example.

The Clutter tool-kit has already had support for Wayland as a back-end, but coming across Twitter this afternoon from the COGL (Clutter OpenGL) feed is word of this Wayland compositor example. The code to it will be released soon in the project's "examples" directory.

Below is the provided screenshot showing off the four display emulation of this compositor dubbed "Cogland." To learn more about the next-generation Wayland Display Server, see Egbert's Wayland slides from LinuxTag.
