What Wayland means for developers

“For two decades, X has been the foundation for Linux graphics. Ubuntu’s decision late in 2010 to switch to Wayland shakes things up all the way to those roots. Just over a month ago, the official 1.0.0 release of Wayland appeared, as well as its associated Weston project. How will these milestones affect working GUI programmers? What will happen to all the existing toolkits – Qt, wxWindows, Tk, and others – on which so many graphical applications already depend?”
