Submission + - Wayland Support Aimed For Next X.Org Server Release (

An anonymous reader writes: Support should finally come with X.Org Server 1.16 this summer for supporting XWayland, the means of allowing legacy X11 applications to run within a root-less X server window on Wayland-based compositors without the need for any application/game changes. With the revised design, XWayland has generic 2D acceleration over OpenGL and a cleaner design compared to earlier revisions. With GNOME 3.12 having better Wayland support and Plasma Next around the corner, it looks like 2014 could be the year of Wayland's take-off!
