"If all goes according to plan by Red Hat engineers operating in
conjunction with Intel, Fedora 20 will be the first tier-one Linux
distribution with decent support for Wayland and a usable desktop
environment having its own compositor.

While Arch Linux and others already ship Wayland packages, the plan for
Fedora 20 is to have it be in a decent shape to serve as a "tech
preview" for enthusiasts. Wayland would be shipped as an optional
feature where users could opt for a Wayland session from the GDM (GNOME
Display Manager) rather than an X.Org Server, which will still be
present in Fedora Linux.

Fedora 20 will be shipping GNOME 3.10, which has good Wayland support
with improvements from the GTK+ tool-kit to the GNOME Shell acting as
its own Wayland compositor to Mutter improvements and a whole lot more,
as covered in many Phoronix articles.


Fedora 20 press archive page created:
