        0.6 is already in the Arch repos!

        Will try on my laptop now, won't be on my desktop until nvidia gets their shit together though.

          Is there any work-ready, stable wayland environment out there that I could use?

            Gnome3 and Hawaii desktop are pretty stable.

              I think Gnome 3.20 probably the best for Wayland support right now. For work it's probably fine. Supports pointer confinement for games too but I'm not sure what the support level in libraries like libSDL is for that yet.

                Argh, Gnome (and Ubuntu's unity) is like the one and only DE I can't stand. Hawaii is not 1.0 yet and nowhere claims to be stable yet. I recall trying it a few months ago and it bugged out on me pretty fast (like I wasn't even running any programs on top of it yet)

                  I am very happy about this. As an i3 user, I've kept a close eye on the sway project since it started. This was the biggest missing feature preventing me from actually using sway until now. I am looking forward to trying this stuff out, and potentially moving full-time to wayland.
