Ozone is a set of C++ classes in Chromium for abstracting different 
window systems on Linux. It provides abstraction for the construction of 
accelerated surfaces underlying Aura UI framework, input devices 
assignment and event handling.


Today we are launching publicly Ozone-Wayland, which is the 
implementation of Chromium's Ozone for supporting Wayland graphics 
system. Different projects based on Chromium/Blink like the Chrome 
browser, ChromeOS, among others can be enabled now using Wayland.


In particular, we have Chrome Browser and Content Shell enabled and 
running on Wayland. All the projects are under active development 
(therefore unstable) but we are hoping to cope with fixes together with 
the open source community.

We'll be posting updates in the following weeks detailing the solution 
and our ideas. Enjoy!
