With yesterday's release of Wayland 1.9, Wayland 1.10 is now under immediate development along with the Weston 1.10 reference compositor.

In the announcement yesterday, Bryce Harrington outlined plans to release Wayland/Weston 1.10 in February. The Wayland 1.10 Alpha is tentatively planned for January, the 1.10 beta in February, the 1.10 RC1 shortly thereafter, and to do the official Wayland 1.1.0 release around mid-February.

As has been the case recently, expect more activity to happen within the Weston compositor world than with the Wayland protocol itself. Expect more work around libweston, continued evolution of Weston back-ends, input device improvements, more IVI Shell enhancements, and other work to come about over the next six months.

Wayland/Weston Git was bumped to v1.9.90 today in Git for reflecting Wayland 1.10 development.
