WAYLAND --
Bryce Harrington has laid out plans for shipping the next major version of Wayland (v1.11) around the end of May and of course joined by Weston 1.11.

Bryce, employed by Samsung's Open-Source Group, has been serving as the Wayland release manager for a while now. For the Wayland 1.11 schedule he is proposing the alpha release and major feature freeze for the beginning of May, a beta release in mid-May, the release candidate around 24 May, and to hopefully do the Wayland 1.11.0 release around 31 May.

Among the likely work to find with Wayland/Weston 1.1 is tablet support for Weston, idle inhibition support, APIs for client information, pointer locking and confinement, RDP fixes, viewpoerter, and more libweston back-end configuration changes.

More details on these early Wayland 1.11 plans can be found via this mailing list post.
