KDE --
There are a lot of Wayland support improvements to find in the upcoming release of KDE's Plasma 5.7.

Wayland advancements for KDE Plasma 5.7 include the improved task manager, virtual keyboard support, sub-surface support, improved input device support, and more. However, missing from Plasma 5.7 is their XDG-Shell support as the API wasn't stabilized in time.

KWin maintainer Martin Gräßlin has written a lengthy blog post covering the Plasma 5.7 Wayland changes that made it for this version.

Plasma 5.7 is currently in beta but will be formally released in July.
