KDE developers have decided to switch to Wayland by default for KDE Neon's unstable/developer OS.

KDE Neon, of course, is the project providing daily spins of the bleeding-edge Ubuntu packages atop Ubuntu. Now moving forward with the new developer/unstable packages is the usage of KDE Plasma on Wayland by default.

Neon will be making this change but is waiting on a newer XWayland to land, until Plasma 5.8 is related, and other updates made.

Great to see this happening as it will expose a lot more testing potential for KDE Plasma on Wayland. More details via Martin's blog.
