    Phoronix: KDE's Project Neon Begins Publishing Daily Wayland Images

    KDE's Project Neon has begun publishing daily images of the latest KDE Plasma stack powered atop Wayland rather than the X.Org Server...

    How are the latest images looking with dual monitors? I understand single monitor is working fine, but on Arch with a very current stack, it glitches bad with kwin_wayland on dual monitor.

      Dual monitor setups are not yet supported.

        Apparently, not even single monitor setups aren't in great shape. There's something in Qt that disconnects a monitor when it goes in to sleep or something like that. Qt 5.6.1 can't come soon enough (and of course, it's been delayed).

          Well that doesn't matter on Wayland :-) On Wayland we don't remove outputs when we put them to sleep and even more we don't even tell apps about it.

            Are these images in a usable state? I mean, could I use it for firefox, kmail, kile, dolphin, etc.? on my Intel Ivy bridge-based laptop?

              Is there any way to install that on top of Debian testing? I want to use newest Plasma, but I'm not interested in Ubunutu.

                Is there any timeline / release schedule for Qt? I can't find any info on Qt 5.6.1.

                  @mgraesslin: First, let me thank you again for your work! I am really looking forward to the day KDE can support all my devices and work flows!

                  Now, as you are already talking about multi-monitor support, I just wanted to ask what your expectations compared to X11 are. The current state of multi-monitor support with docking stations in Plasma/KWin is... suboptimal (I am now the last KDE user at the chair because of that ) - will this all be magically solved with Wayland or won't that matter much?

                  (Background: If a multimonitor support will be supported better with wayland I will try to switch more sooner than later. If not, I can keep my notebook on X11 for the time being.)

                    Ha, I'm so stupid. Iirc you even blogged about this difference at some point, but I completely forgot about it.
                    It's nice to know Wayland is at least safe from this bug, cause I'm sure there are many others at such an early stage.
