WayVNC 0.8 Preparing Transient Seats, Automatic Server-Side Resizing & Detached Mode
WayVNC 0.8-rc0 was released on Sunday as the first step towards this next feature release. WayVNC 0.8 is bringing transient seats via wiring up the new ext-transient-seat-v1 protocol. The ext_transient_seat_v1 extension was originally drafted three years ago but recently was finally merged. This transient seat protocol for Wayland is intended for virtual input protocols like virtual keyboard/pointers for creating new independent seats that will be removed from the compositor when the client destroys its transient seat. The current protocol text can be found via wayland-protocols.
WayVNC 0.8 is alos working on automatic server-side resizing of headless outputs. The third main feature being worked on for WayVNC 0.8 is supporting a detached mode. In the WayVNC detached mode, this VNC support can be attached and detached from a running compositor.
More details on the WayVNC 0.8-rc0 changes can be found via the project's GitHub.
