The second release candidates to Wayland 1.7 and the reference Weston compositor is now available.

Wayland 1.7 RC2 fixes a regression on older systems (Ubuntu 12.04 ea) and a fix for a test failure on systems with the Yama Linux Security Module enabled. Wayland 1.7 RC1 was released last week.

Weston 1.7 RC2 meanwhile has some clean-up work and fixes for crashes. There's also better handling of multiple keyboard and pointer button events. There's also XWayland refinements in the mix too.

More details on these 1.7 RC2 changes can be found via the Wayland mailing list. The official 1.7.0 releases of Wayland and Weston are expected in about one week.
