      It is part of Xorg now. Not Wayland or Weston releases.

        XWayland is how you run X11 applications under Wayland. It is hardly going anywhere in near future

          We do not need XWayland, we need native Wayland apps.

            Realistically, you want both since some X apps are never going to get ported over.

                Individuals may have a need for XWayland (not necessarily X itself) for a very long time to run older apps. It is not realistic to expect that Wayland will replace X for all users. It will be a slow transition to reduce the negative impact on end users.

                  One normally moves to other applications that leverage the new technologies and whose functionality matches the old guard that will never upgrade.
