Wayland 1.3 RC2 Arrives with Touch Improvements

The latest version of Wayland can be downloaded from Softpedia

Wayland, a protocol for a compositor to talk to its clients, as well as a C library implementation of that protocol, which can be used as a standalone display server running on Linux kernel modesetting and evdev input devices, an X application, or a Wayland client itself, has reached version 1.3 RC2.

The developers are on their way to deliver the final version of Wayland by the end of September, and this latest version only features a few touch fixes.

“I just tagged and uploaded 1.3 RC2 (version 1.2.92). The most critical fixes in this second release candidate are the touch event fixes from Neil. We also have fixes for the weston-launch rewrite to work better with the fbdev and rpi backends, a fix for the sleep/wakeup state machine and a few other minor things,” stated Kristian Høgsberg on the official mailing list.

A detailed list of changes can be found in the official announcement. Download Wayland 1.3 RC2 right now from Softpedia.

Remember that this is a development version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
