UBUNTU --
A new open-source tool for helping to debug Wayland protocol messages is now available thanks to Canonical's Mir team.

William Wold, one of the semi-recent hires to the Mir team at Canonical, led work on Wayland-Debug as a new tool for debugging Wayland issues. This Wayland Debug tool offers in-depth reporting of Wayland protocol messages, supports multiple connections, and also supports breakpoints on Wayland messages.

This Python-written debug helper can be found via GitHub. More details on Wayland-Debug can be found on an overview post up at discourse.ubuntu.com.
