Wayland Protocols v1.0 Released
Written by Michael Larabel in Wayland on 25 November 2015 at 07:09 AM EST. 16 Comments
Last week I wrote about the Wayland protocols being split from Wayland and Weston itself. Today marks the version 1.0 release of these protocols.

Wayland-Protocols is an independent repository of the protocols that are now marching to their own release schedule. This also reflects a change in development tactics in that protocol additions/modifications aren't necessarily implemented yet in the Weston reference compositor. However, this is the path they're looking at moving forward.

The Wayland Protocols 1.0 release includes support for Fullscreen Shell, Input Method, Linux DMA-BUF, Pointer Gestures, Presentation Timing, Text Input, and XDG Shell. All of these protocols are considered unstable for the v1.0 release with no protocols being declared stable yet in this repository.

More details via the mailing list announcement by frequent Wayland contributor Jonas Ã…dahl.
