Phoronix: Wayland-Based Hawaii Desktop Is Still Active
While there's been a lot of Wayland announcements recently, there hasn't been much news on the Wayland-powered Qt5-based Hawaii desktop that's part of the Maui project. Though they have hit a roadblock in their "Green Island" Wayland compositor, the desktop shell continues to move forward with new features and functionality...
What is the point of rewriting a compositor if Weston works fine and fast?
The wayland developers are VERY clear that Weston is a test-bed for ideas and is only an example of how to do things. It probably will never get optimized fully and is only meant to be there as a tutorial for Gnome or Enlightenment or KDE to show a way to do their own work
