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

Jonathan Riddell passed along word that daily ISOs are now being spun of the freshest KDE development code with KWin acting as a Wayland compositor. The OS base is still Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Details via Riddell's blog and the ISOs appear at files.kde.org. If you already have an updated Ubuntu Linux installation, it's also easy switching over to the Wayland-based KDE experience via the plasma-workspace-wayland package in the Neon archive.
