Color Management Code Merged Into Wayland/Weston
Phoronix: Color Management Code Merged Into Wayland/Weston
Support for color management has been merged into Wayland's Weston compositor...
Richard Hughes is also the guy behind the ColorHug colorimeter device.
He also have contributed to the GNOME color calibration software, I believe.
The bigger news is that someone from the Enlightenment camp expressed interest in implementing the minimize thing after the whole drama with Scott and the rest of the devs. I think this is the only thing missing from having an X less Enlightenment.
Un-fullscreening isnt implemented yet either (not sure if its on the E side or the Wayland side though...) The e18 release manager blog said they were missing un-fullscreening (and because undoing it isn't available, theyve disabled fullscreening to prevent complaints).

For anyone who that link craps out for, just drop the trailing "\" in the URL bar.

I find it ironic how people say it is a Linux way of naming programs version 0.x for 10 years before reaching 1.0, yet Wayland is already 1.1 and it has no minimize or maximize - two of the most basic functions.
You're obviously new here. Wayland 1.0 only symbolized that the protocol was stable and they wouldn't break backwards compatibility. It didn't mean "Feature complete" or anything like that.

BTW, I love the fact that color management is built into the protocol. That should make for a nice, consistent experience.
Not afraid to claim ignorance here... How exactly does Color Management work? With Wayland especially. Wayland's mandate is: every frame is perfect. I know this was more meant in the idea of tearing, but wouldn't that extend to "Every pixel is perfect"? Meaning: "Every pixel is exactly how the client meant for it to be drawn." So why would you need Color Management anyway? I guess color management would be useful for visually impaired users (flipping all colors to be the inverse in black and white)
