Wayland 1.14 Scheduled For Early June Release

Wayland 1.13 was released this week along with Weston 2.0. In announcing v1.13, Bryce Harrington also laid out plans for Wayland 1.14.

Wayland 1.14 (and Weston 2.1) are now officially under development. The plan is to release Wayland 1.14 Alpha in early May, Wayland 1.14 Beta in mid-May, Wayland 1.14 RC1 in late May, and the official Wayland 1.14.0 release in early June.

Those are the rough plans for Wayland 1.14. Weston 2.1 should be following roughly in-step as usual, as mentioned already, Weston departed the same versioning scheme due to ABI breakage during the 1.13 cycle development.

What do you hope will be added to the Wayland 1.14 protocol? What nifty things might you like to see in the Weston compositor? Share your thoughts with us in the forums.
