    I tried today with the latest version with intel drivers. Weston-launch still works for me.

    is mentioned as a solution, but won't this have any drawbacks?

So I'm not blaming them for going slow on minimize to make sure they've got all their bases covered.
    They should say that major version numbers are incompatible.
    This way you can redo stuff if you get it wrong, which is worth a lot.
    Then X.Y version numbers have Y releases as new feature releases where everything of the same X must be compatible.

    Also will it be possible with Wayland and Weston to remove a graphics driver, temporarily use software rendering and install a new graphics driver without rebooting?
