WAYLAND --
Besides LibreOffice running natively on Wayland, progress has been made this week on running Mozilla's Firefox web-browser natively on Wayland.

Red Hat developers have been working on getting Firefox native to Wayland with their ambitions to switch Firefox Workstation over to Wayland by default rather than an X.Org Server. This Firefox Wayland work is in-step with the GTK3 version of Firefox.

This is good news for Fedora users running the latest Wayland stack. Details on Firefox native for Wayland can be found via this Google+ post by Red Hat's Jiří Eischmann.
