      Sounds great! Always happy to see a new Wayland release.
      I was hoping there would be a mention of Nvidia, since apparently it will be enabled on Fedora soon even for those of of us stuck on Nvidia cards while we wait for AMD cards to drop down about $1000. I'd get on Fedora now but I just can't tear myself away from the conveniences of Manjaro/Arch yet.

        There is no protocol changes associated with Nvidia. That's purely a change in the Nvidia proprietary driver. So you shouldn't expect any Wayland announcements on this.

          Wayland 1.20 also does away with its deprecated GNU Autotools build system support in now focusing exclusively on the Meson build system.
          I wish there was an anchor to that, so that I can link it every time someone cops out of a discussion criticizing Wayland with the "it's just a protocol" argument.

              Fractional scaling doesn't even work for all applications anyway and scaling of all sorts works terribly in X11 if you need mixed scaling factors.

                I was about to say the same thing.
                This situation is unbelievable!
                I don't understand why there is no fractional scaling yet: if it works with electron apps, then it can work everywhere.

                    Because fractional scaling isn't remotely straightforward. You're talking about scaling fractions of pixels. Thats why the discussion you linked to is so extensive.

                    It also would still rely on application development toolkits supporting fractional scaling. For example, GTK only supports integer scaling.
