With Qt 5.8's Qt Wayland Compositor Framework taking shape, more developers are beginning to tailor a Qt Wayland compositor to their use-cases. One of those is a company specializing in farm equipment like combine harvesters, tractors, and harvesters.

As a guest post on the official Qt blog, developer Andreas Cord-Landwehr of CLAAS E-Systems talked up Qt Wayland for their purposes in the highly-regulated agriculture industry.

If you are interested in some light reading this morning that shows the progression and maturing of Wayland and specifically the Qt Wayland support, stop by the Qt blog. Related to that blog post is his FOSDEM 2017 presentation about the same topic of writing device-specific Wayland compositors with the Qt Wayland Framework.
