WAYLAND --
Hawaii Shell, a Qt 5 based desktop interface that has a Weston plug-in for Wayland support, has experienced a new release. This Hawaii Shell release for Wayland has many new desktop-related features for those wishing for something a little more than a stock Weston desktop.

New features of the Hawaii Shell 0.1.92 release from Monday include improved multi-screen support, a theming QML API, modal dialogs, a lock screen, and logout/lock/restart/power-off/suspend actions, and lots of fixes.

This latest Hawaii Shell release supports desktop themes written using QML. The Hawaii Shell is considered by its developers to be in "very good shape" with it having an application launcher, panels, PolicyKit integration, notifications, and a lock screen. There's also more features being planned for Hawaii 0.2.0.

More details on the Hawaii Shell 0.1.92 release can be found via the wayland-devel announcement. A video of this new Hawaii Shell in action is embedded below.
