          There is a maintained build of Kodi on Wayland for quite some time now. I'm not sure if it'll get merged into the main Kodi because their seems some animosity towards the guy maintaining the build. Still, it worked very well last time I tried.

            Wayland support for Kodi! This is going to be perfect for LibreELEC!

              "Support for Go Language and Rust in KDevelop."

              Nice. One IDE to rule them all.

                Yes! Wayland support in Kodi! Along with hardware accelerated video decoding, this makes it a really good option for a media center or tablet.
