    It’s pretty much complete now. Nice.

      Without DRM lease no VR. It's not complete at all. At least I won't be able to switch completely.

        The core Wayland protocol isn't of much interest.

        What Michael should be focusing on is wayland-protocols, which are extensions of the core Wayland protocol.

          Another Wayland topic. Everyone, get your bingo cards out of the drawer!

            Is drag-and-drop working now? Or is that planned for an upcoming release?

              I think Wayland should adopt the Vulkan approach, not the current one.

                Agreed

                I also said this in the last wayland post.

                  This could be a good move, but I'm afraid it's too late now.
                  If something like libwayland-compositor was proposed and developed 5 years ago, this could end up inside different compositors.
                  But nowadays since every compositor has its own implementation, this library is pointless. New developers may prefer to fork an existing project and start from there.

                    Well, there are a few libraries. libweston and wlroots being probably the most prominent. wlroots lists dozens of projects using it, so the claim that every compositor has its own implementation seems incorrect. What is probably more correct is that the two majors of the linux desktop have mostly gone their own way implementing wayland because they have a large legacy code base.
