X11, Window Managers "This is the first real release of Wayland and Weston. Wayland is the protocol and IPC mechanism while Weston is the reference compositor implementation. The 0.85 branch in both repositories is going to be protocol and interface stable. We have a series of protocol changes on the table before 1.0 but this branch marks a stable point before we jump into that." Change is coming to the Linux world. And yes, I get the irony of using this particular icon, but it's the closest I could find.

Agreed. I'd also like to see Wayland have its own logo here in OSnews, so I've emailed the Wayland icon to Thom Holwerda, but he said they are working on a new version of OSnews.

This was his reply:

Thanks for all the work, but we're working on the next version of OSNews, so we're not going to be changing things in v4 ;) . Wayland isn't big enough for its own category.


Here is the icon I made:

I hope that Thom doesn't mind that we are quoting him here. ;)

I just assumed the icon had something to do with running rings around X.
