Yes, we intend to continue supporting NPAPI plugins. However, NPAPI
plugins are not currently supported under Wayland. We intend to add
support for windowless plugins, such as the GNOME Shell browser plugin;
the support is already written (it's awaiting code review), so it
should be ready prior to F24.
Windowed plugins (Flash, Java, etc.) will not be supported under
Wayland. We will continue to support them under X11 indefinitely.
As for building NPAPI plugins, there's a separate project that only
ships the required headers. I've forgotten what it's called, but Debian
uses it to build their NPAPI plugins and it probably needs just
packaging up if the plan is to drop xulrunner. The pkgconfig file name
is different from xulrunner's, but since Debian already uses it I expect
most project are already checking both pkgconfig names.
