    Yeah there's been a ton of commits.

    I made a ppa with nightly builds: https://launchpad.net/~ernstp/+archive/ubuntu/wayland

      Sadly, HiDPI support for Xwayland clients is still missing. All we get is blurry windows. That is unless things like https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorg/...e_requests/733 get through. Though they get very little traction.

      Michael just a nit-pick: to project is called Xwayland, not XWayland. Case in point is https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorg/...f9d41e3614b3d7

        The day I will be able to CTRL-C, CTRL-V between VMs
        And also be able to drag and drop files from host to VM or VM to VM.

        Will be the day I will switch. Until then, X will stay.

        Most of my applications seam to run just fine (beside the copy/paste malfunction and issue moving files to different vm) without using Xwayland. Except some prepackaged appimage one.

          LOL, it seems you suffer from the same frustration that I do. Except my trigger fires when people spell VMware wrong by slapping a wrong-sized 'W' in their name. VMWare hurts my eyes so much!

            We keep seeing movement on X and Xwayland. We haven't heard squat out of actual Wayland in ages. We were told that people should move to Wayland so they could stop developing the X servers. Turns out when we moved all the work seems to have stopped on Wayland and is being focused on X.

              I have had much the same feeling, especially in the last quite a number of months!

              Lets be honest though... both Wayland and Xorg are going to die when Systemd comes out with their fully integrated display manager

                For me Wayland needs better multi-monitor support in regards to gaming; probably better 10-bit color support (its better then X atm), and display ICC and gamma/brightness/contrast controls which do exist under X for the most part.

                  Define "haven't heard squat".

                  Just because Michael doesn't cover them does not mean they have ceased development.

                    Have thy released any thing other than trivial bug fixes lately? There used to be information on what they were doing regarding colour management but then they said they were going to stop posting about it some time last year and we haven't heard any thing since. How is fractional scaling coming? HDR? If you have a trove of info other than "Go read the source" I would love to give it a look.
