Name        : mutter-wayland
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 3.9.92
Release     : 1.fc20

Summary     : Mutter window manager with experimental Wayland support
Description :
Mutter is a window and compositing manager that displays and manages
your desktop via OpenGL. Mutter combines a sophisticated display engine
using the Clutter toolkit with solid window-management logic inherited
from the Metacity window manager.

While Mutter can be used stand-alone, it is primarily intended to be
used as the display core of a larger system such as GNOME Shell. For
this reason, Mutter is very extensible via plugins, which are used both
to add fancy visual effects and to rework the window management
behaviors to meet the needs of the environment.

This package contains an experimental Mutter version with Wayland
support. It will eventually get merged back into the main Mutter
package and mutter-wayland is going to go away; in the mean time this
package is available for early adopters.

Update Information:

This update adds initial support for running GNOME Shell as a Wayland compositor.

Most important would be to verify that this doesn't regress the X11 backend. The Wayland backend is a bit hard to test at the moment because XWayland packages are still missing and the current GDM version doesn't support launching Wayland sessions.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update mutter-wayland' at the command line.

available at http://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/.

All packages are signed with the Fedora Project GPG key.  More details on the
