Now that I have your attention To get Plasma running on Wayland we first need Qt 5 and KDE Frameworks 5. An important part of going to Frameworks 5 is libplasma2. At the moment we are preparing a developer sprint in Randa to make libplasma2 happen. You can read more about the importance of this sprint in sebas’s blog post.
KDE has started a fund raising campaign to make this sprint possible. But we are still lacking around 2000 EUR at the time of this writing and just a little bit more than 200 people participated in this fund raising.
Now you are probably interested in getting a real update on the work which happened over the last year in the efforts to bring KDE (in particular KWin) to Wayland and I really want to provide it to you so that you don’t have to rely on articles about an informal chat over lunch. But I’m currently lacking motivation to write such a blog post. I think I would be much more motivated to write such a post if when I get home this evening from XDC I see our fund raising succeeded. It would show me that people really want to see progress in the KDE Plasma workspaces.
