DESKTOP --
Enlightenment's Wayland support continues to become more feature complete with the latest feature work being for session recovery support.

With the latest work brought yesterday to Enlightenment Git, there's now support throughout under Wayland for session recovery support. This makes it possible where if the compositor were to die, there's support for reconnecting Wayland applications.

Mike Blumenkrantz of Samsung explained, "disconnect -> destroy gl ctx + image textures -> block rendering -> reconnect -> create gl ctx -> create image textures -> unblock rendering -> sprinkle special seasoning on top -> just like ma used to make."

This new Wayland functionality will be present in Enlightenment E21.
