for months been talking about this alternative to traditional X11 windowing system, and although its advantages are remarkable both for users and for developers, there are still many points to be resolved. And that has just announced the availability of Wayland 1.0 (and its window manager, Weston).
is because as indicated on Phoronix, the creator of Wayland Wayland explained that Kristian Høgsberg 1.0 “ simply defines the point at which developers can Wayland sure no backward compatibility with the Wayland-based protocol and its API “.
So we have a version particularly relevant Developer , but not as crucial for end users: it will take even see Wayland in action in any standard distribution, and in fact the list points to be solved is important, as revealed in the original article.
believe that although there may be attempts to integrate Wayland in Ubuntu 13.04, and that support this integration will not be realized until Ubuntu 13.10 , which only appear within a year. Other distributions like Fedora will also demonstrate the experimental possibilities of this system of windows, but again we are left with this message: way to go.
