    The lead developer behind the Hawaii Desktop Environment now believes that their Qt Quick 2 desktop is now in a usable state for Wayland and can run fine on the Weston compositor...

    Technically that was already Wayland, just on the framebuffer instead of KMS
    Hawaii used to run on Green Island which is a Wayland compositor made with QML that uses the QtCompositor API and now there's also support for Weston
    QtCompositor is considered experimental for the upcoming Qt 5.1, while I really prefer QML over C code Weston has many more features.

    Going to see how XWayland work today

    Yikes!

    Ah. It's hard to find real news on the 1st

    Glad to hear a wayland is getting a nice supporting desktop. Weston looks pretty good on my desktop.. if you could launch X apps on it I may actually consider running it
