    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...

    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!

      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.

            The real news about wayland is not xorg.... that is called xwayland. the real news is to issue how many programs are NATIVE WAYLAND until now. How many programs are native wayalnd until now!?

              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.

                I hope this gets merged before the new XWayland release:

                  And the boring comments continue...

                    I'm pretty sure it's GNOME - KDE Plasma - Xfce in terms of popularity...
