          I imagine the next change log will be:
          -KWin no longer crashes when launching a Wayland app.
          -Plasma has been fixed to accept a Wayland session.

            I was experimenting Kubuntu 20.04 for about a week on Wayland. I was impressed. No crashes, no big shenanigans, apart from the copy/paste thing. Last year things looked bad, but now, there were times I even forgot I was on Wayland. And on gaming, the title that got me some trouble was the SCS's Truck Simulators, with a buggy mouse behavior, but this game have input problems on its own even on X.

              Looks like Martin Floser is pretty unhappy about the Kwin forks. Blog wars.

                And that's a big win for users. At least someon is working on KWin issues instead of doing redesigns and other very important stuff. I don't care whether my System Settings is a list or icon grid, but I do care when KWin crashes after I exit a Steam game (this does not happen on any other environment on the same system).

                  Actually, he was polite about stating his disagreement regarding the fork, so calling it a "war" is just a bunch of silly nonsense. Of course you didn't link to it, since the blog itself contradicts your description of it. Here it is: https://blog.martin-graesslin.com/bl...04/on-forking/

                  Of interest from his blog post is this, however:
                  Also I must say that if I wanted to write a new Wayland compositor I would not fork KWin. KWin started as an X11 window manager and those roots will always be there. In our decision on how to handle the transition to Wayland this was a central aspect as we still have to provide an X11 window manager for those who cannot and do not want to switch. Thus we needed to evolve KWin instead of starting something new. But for a Wayland first compositor I would not start with KWin.

                    The exact opposite - obviously, the issue could be fixed in the current code base, no need for a fork.
