    Default ADWC: A Tiling Window Manager For Wayland

    Phoronix: ADWC: A Tiling Window Manager For Wayland

    There's now the first tiling manager for Wayland. Called ADWC, this open-source tiling manager can already start applications using XWayland. There's some videos showing off this Weston fork, including the Opera web-browser and KDE's KWrite running on Wayland...

    KWin's main developer, Martin Grasslin, had said he stopped the KWin - Wayland effort because of lack of a stable release. Now that the stable release is imminent, he sure will return to the work.

    Nice seeing Wayland targeted projects turning up in the wild already, both a testament to it attracting interest and that it's maturing very quickly.

    What stable release are we talking about? 0.85 or something newer?

    I am not sure, if 0.85 is considered stable or beta. I was cautious here.

    I believe Martin Grlin's complaint was that there wasn't any release of Wayland, and developing against Wayland master with its constant protocol changes was... challenging. So yes, I think 0.85 would qualify here. It's quite a lot more stable than master.

    I don't think 0.85 has officially been called stable / beta / alpha / etc. anywhere, but it's pretty stable.
