GNOMEMatthias Clasen, a developer of GNOME company Red Hat, presented a plan for implementation of support Wayland in GNOME. According to the plan, the initial support Wayland will appear in GNOME 3.10, which is scheduled for this fall, and a full-featured job over GNOME Wayland expected to release 3.12, which will be released in the spring of 2014.

In GNOME 3.10 the default is still to use X-server, but will be added to the optional ability to run shell GNOME Shell as a composite server Wayland, which will be provided to support the basic interfaces that are identical to the reference composite server Weston. At the same time will be brought to readiness for daily use Wayland backend to GTK +.

As for applications, it is now from 68 basic programs Wayland support is present in 35 applications, 26 programs require additional porting, 7 programs have not yet been verified. To run regular applications do not support working over Wayland, will be involved component XWayland, allowing to provide the usual run X11-applications on top of Wayland. Continue reading
