    Phoronix: XWayland Gets Tidied Up Ahead Of The Holidays For The Eventual X.Org Server 1.21

    Sadly there still is no release plan for getting the long overdue X.Org Server 1.21 out the door and at this point is looking increasingly unlikely that it would land for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. But at least this extra time for X.Org Server 1.21 has allowed more XWayland changes to flow in...

    Olivier founded XFCE, left it for something better. Prepares Xwayland for the big X removal. Works on Mutter.

      We are desperately waiting for a new release of XWayland :-) It's a pity that the issues are not fixed in time in official releases!

        R41N3R Don't worry. Xwayland fixes will be released in sync with GNOME releases.

          R41N3R It’s just Adam Jackson being super busy on code that matters more than X.

            Olivier Fourdan still works on Xfce, especially on Xfwm4, the window manager / compositor.
            He didn't "leave" Xfce for "something better", he works on Mutter as a part of his job at Red Hat (among other things).

              You already claimed this after xorg 1.20.6 release, and you were proved wrong:

                I do not care about Gnome releases and about your repeating/boring fanboy comments. I'm only interested when these issues are resolved technically in XWayland.

                    I use GNOME Wayland and the only applications I have that don't run natively under Wayland are games and any electron apps.

                    Any GTK (incl. Firefox) and QT applications are now running natively under Wayland.
