While the initial EGLStreams-based support for using the NVIDIA proprietary driver with XWayland was merged for the recent X.Org Server 1.20 release, the next xorg-server release will feature more improvements.

The XWayland changes made on Thursday include a fix for the EGLStreams-based support potentially crashing at start-up, better handling of Wayland compositors passing of the EGLStream parameter regardless of actual driver/build support, interface checks, and various other improvements to the XWayland code.
