Chromium Embedded Framework Closer To Native Wayland Support
Written by Michael Larabel in Wayland on 23 December 2017 at 09:36 AM EST. 8 Comments
Collabora's latest Wayland enablement effort is on getting the Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) running nicely under Wayland with the Mus/Ozone infrastructure.

A Collabora customer wanted to switch from X11 to Wayland, but CEF for web applications currently isn't Wayland-ready. Collabora developers were successful in getting upstream to make some necessary infrastructure changes, they contributed touch support for the Wayland back-end, and some other improvements.

More details and how to build Chromium CEF with Wayland support can be found via the Collabora blog.
