Enlightenment E20 Wayland Support Continues To Advance

Written by Michael Larabel in Wayland on 2 November 2015 at 06:17 PM EST. 13 Comments
One month after the release of the Enlightenment 0.20 Alpha with much better Wayland support that led to the Wayland support from Enlightenment 0.19 being removed, the support continues to mature.

The continued advancement of Enlightenment on Wayland can be seen from a quick Git search.

The most recent addition is Wayland EGL client support.

Those interested in possibly trying out E20 with Wayland can see their Wayland README.

Among the known issues still are internal windows not correctly handling drag-and-drops, nested compositors not creating internal windows, window closing problems, XWayland clients not smoothly resizing, keyboard layout switching doesn't work on Wayland, and more.
