WAYLAND --
With Wayland/Weston 1.9 having been released earlier this week, Wayland 1.10 is now under development and already there's been a lot of new code piling into the Weston compositor.

Two days ago I wrote about patches being published for systemd notification support with the Weston compositor and already that initial code has landed. The systemd notification status and watchdog support isn't enabled by default but requires the --enable-systemd-notify compile-time switch and adding the new module to the Weston INI configuration file.

Weston also has replacing its old VT switching code with now utilizing new logind APIs.

There's also been other fixes and new changes in the days since Weston 1.10 officially opened for development.

Wayland/Weston 1.10 is planned for release in February.
