    Can someone give me any pointers to get installed on Fedora 32, at least the most "official" way? I think their may be a Sway COPR or something, but I am kind of knew to all of these Fedora-isms. Learning, but still relatively new. Thanks.
    It was released less than 24 hours ago, but I imagine it will land in updates soon. For the folks who are okay with 1.4 until the update...

    Code:
    sudo dnf install sway
    It looks like waybar, swaybg, swayidle, and swaylock are also in the default repos.

    Code:
    $ sudo dnf install sway

      pWe00Iri3e7Z9lHOX2Qx Thanks for responding. My concern (not that it is a big issue), is that Fedora 32 will stay on Sway 1.4, but I do not know what their policies are in regards to jumping to a new "major" release in any given Fedora release (I suppose it depends on the application.) I did my homework, and did find these if I want to give them a try:

      https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/jlay/sway/
      https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/jlay/wlroots/

      I have used COPR very little, but this is a chance to play with it more. This Fedora 32 install is just kind of a playground anyway, I plan on installing Fedora 33 clean when release, so I can mess with Btrfs a bit.

      Thanks again!

        An update in case anyone comes across this article in the future and wonders about Fedora and newer versions of Sway. I didn't notice this originally, but there is a rolling module for Sway.

        Code:
        sudo dnf module enable sway:rolling
        sudo dnf install sway
        Don't get your hopes up that this will be Tumbleweed or Arch levels of rolling, but 1.5 did land in the rolling module a few weeks after it was released. Currently the regular Fedora repos still have 1.4.6. The rolling module has been on 1.5 for a while now.

        If you want to disable it again for some reason...

        Code:
        sudo dnf module disable sway
