    Unless compositors keep an open list of mandatory and optional Wayland features and their level of support, I will not bother hunting down every announcement they implemented yet another thing, still leaving clueless how far/close they are from usable support.

    "I use Plasma Wayland daily and it works pretty well. It's got some bugs, and in some cases major ones, but it has not crashed on me in a year now and with Plasma 5.18.1 I've not encountered any major issues."

    Maybe he's using Chrome, Chromium, etc., or maybe he's using Firefox.

    Are you sure you're not using XWayland? Also, it's still far from being ready because scaling is super-blurry on every XWayland app.

    One issue in this early release (that also affects current plasma versions) is sleeping/waking does not correctly retain rotated monitor settings/layout. However, hot plugging a monitor from a laptop works flawlessly so far.

    KWin issue then? I sure can use Firefox on Sway.

    Yes, great work! One of the nice and important features is crossed off now for Plasma.

    I really hope that 5.19 will address the main pain points of Plasma on Wayland like the subsurface issue and not working copy & paste in some applications like Firefox Wayland.
