During this year’s Akademy we had a few discussions about Wayland, and the Plasma and Neon team decided to switch Neon developer unstable edition to Wayland by default soonish.
There are still a few things in the stack which need to be shaken out – we need a newer Xwayland in Neon, we want to wait for Plasma 5.8 to be released, we need to get the latest QtWayland 5.7 build, etc. etc.
This is really exciting. It’s probably the biggest step towards Wayland by default the KDE community has ever taken. I hope that other continuous delivery systems will follow so that we can get many enthusiastic users to try Wayland.
