KWin maintainer Martin Gräßlin has written a monthly status update concerning the state of KWin and KDE Plasma on Wayland.

The German open-source developer explained that most of the underlying work is finished as is most of the KWin Wayland porting, but the complete stack still needs more time to bake with Wayland. Much of October was spent working on the geometry handling with Wayland and still dealing with X11-specific KDE code.

He ended with, "I’ll focus on stabilizing the current state of Plasma/Wayland and fix bugs, fix bugs and fix bugs. My aim is to have a useable early-adopters version ready for the Plasma 5.5 release. It’s looking good, so I’m confident that we will reach that state."
