    Wayland 1.10 adds support for drag and drop actions.
    Then why on earth is the version above 1.0?

      will be interesting if Wayland is used as Default in F24. , Michael, keep ya eye on Fedora Desktop list which should have the Meeting link in it.

      The Workstation WG meeting is scheduled for this Wednesday, 2016-Feb-17 at 1500 UTC (10:00 EST, 16:00 CEST).
      but my main Gripe with Wayland in F23 is that the Mouse Cursor will dissapear

        Because version numbers are basically meaningless anyway? Plus things like that are above the "here's a buffer, display it" core of Wayland. This probably builds on the work from XDG-shell, which was Wayland+desktop focus. Drag and Drop was already working fine under Gnome + Wayland on F23, so it likely just got implemented in another part of the stack before being moved down to Wayland-proper.

              or maybe it is an entirely different drag and drop... maybe like dragging the whole wayland-window and dropping it on another display. just a guess. I would believe drag and drop on the desktop is handled by plasma, gnome etc. themselves... again, this is just a guess (to provoke an answer from more knowledgable people)

                The wiki page (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Wayland_features) has been updated at 17 Feb, so should be accurate enough about the actual progress.
                I see a lot of 100%, but nothing in the camp of the accessibility features (even if I don't care about it, I don't know if it could be a stopper).
                There are a couple of things that are in the list but market as "wont fix", such as:
                1. Window size hints
                2. XRandR control of Wayland outputs

                And other that are supposed to work already but no one checked it, such as:
                1. screensaver control

                However, I don't know if they are on schedule or too late to make wayland the default for F24.

                    Yeah, and D-Bus support.
                    So I don't have to launch every other application prefixed with dbus-launch.
                    Or start Weston itself via dbus-launch.
