The Maui Project that's been focusing on a Wayland desktop, their own Wayland compositor, and other tasks has decided to adopt the KDE Frameworks 5.

With KDE Frameworks 5 being modularized and a nice set of components while also being Wayland focused, Maui has decided to use KDE Frameworks 5 moving forward. Pier Luigi Fiorini of the Maui Project wrote, "Maui has decided to start using KDE Frameworks as its underlying stack and become a member of the cooperative and open family that is KDE and Qt. Along with the Qt open governance, developers of the whole ecosystem can now co-operate even more closely together and make better software. Maui is now able to focus completely on the user experience of specifically building a lightweight and easy-to-use shell by empowering Frameworks and other great Qt technologies."

For showing off their initial work there's an initial ISO image for installation available for download to show off the Maui goodness.
