Another Enlightenment release, another round of significant Wayland improvements. Enlightenment continues with its very well vetted Wayland support that should be roughly on par with the GNOME Wayland experience.

Enlightenment DR 0.21.0 was released a few minutes ago by Samsung's Mike Blumenkrantz. The prominent changes for Enlightenment 0.21 include greatly improved Wayland support, a new gadget infrastructure, support for video backgrounds, various fixes, and other improvements.

Some of the specific improvements include session recovery support for E on Wayland, wobbly window support, and over on the EFL library side there's been the new DRM library, and more. You may be interested to read why Enlightenment and Tizen love Wayland from earlier this year.
