    I doubt anytime soon. For now it requires Cairo with GL backend which as far as I've been able to decipher is still not nearly production-ready.
    In other words, even if you got a release, you couldn't use it.

    so.. its great news, finally something not bloated?

    all what i need is fast response, no redrawing, no flicker, no "cool stuff" like compiz, just be able to work with very low resource consumption and allows to run drivers and fullscreen programs flawless.

    someone knows when it will be ready to use? even beta ?

    Wayland is X.org, stripped from everything that's old, the libs and the network protocol and pushes the latest technology, such as KMS, Gallium3D, OpenGL ES, EGL, etc.

    It's not, by any means, X11 or 'X12', but just a tiny display server.

    It can, however, use X.org's server for Xlib software and client-server computing.

    QT and GTK+ are using Xlib, so they must be ported over to Wayland in order to run without the X.org server, which is what is happening now.

    Wayland, due to being tiny and clean, is great for embedded devices, which MeeGo targets.

    So basically Wayland is the BusyBox equivalent of X.org.

    This is very good news.
    I was doubting Intel's interest in Wayland, precisely because they weren't mentioning Qt support, while they are quickly moving to Qt internally.
