Written by Michael Larabel in Wayland on 24 September 2016 at 11:01 AM EDT. 4 Comments
Following this week's Wayland/Weston 1.12 release, Wayland 1.13 and the reference Weston 1.13 compositor are now open for development.

Release manager Bryce Harrington has bumped the versions on Git master for marking the Wayland and Weston Git trees being open for v1.13 development work.

In the Weston space, Weston 1.13 is anticipated to have more improvements to the libweston and libweston-desktop components that have been about making it easier for other Wayland compositors to re-use parts of Weston's basic functionality. There is also the idle inhibition protocol in the works and other changes expected in the next few months for Wayland/Weston.

Wayland/Weston 1.13 is tentatively planned for release in February 2017. Perhaps in time for the next Weston release we might see early work on the proposed new memory/surface allocation API that might ultimately succeed GBM in Wayland compositors.

Stay tuned to Phoronix for news on Wayland/Weston 1.13 development.
