    Phoronix: Wayland GTK+ Support Being Improved With CSD

    The branch of the GTK+ tool-kit being used for introducing support for client side decorations is being prepped for review and ultimately being merged to mainline...

    Happy times. The branch is now getting some more TLC by redhatters. Merge time?

    Disregard this message. It works. I think the problem was that I was building it while running weston, so it couldn't overwrite the already existing weston executable.

    Not really - it's hardly news that the Gtk folks are working on Wayland, and have been for a long time. This is just that their latest work happen to more or less coincide with the Mir announcement...

    This GTK branch actually predated the revealing of Mir

    Why not have a library called something like libwayland-decoration?

    Then all widget toolkits, GTK, Qt, EFL, Clutter, etc all use this decoration library to draw the window decorations?

    Then all applications will have decorations that look the same and have a nice unified look.

    We don't want GTK and Qt applications to look different and alien. We want nice integration.
    It's too early still. I'm pretty sure some unified effort will be made in the future, but it will most likely involve
    using subsurfaces for the decoration, which aren't finished yet (work in progress).

    Right now though, something is needed to get apps working in a basic state, so GTK draws them itself.

    You can have one decoration library without have serverside decoration.
    But I think wayland is wrong place for it.
