I would like to spam the list a little bit to announce that a new
version of Hawaii Shell is available.
This release is limited to Hawaii Shell and the Weston plugin not the
I'm now releasing a module at a time, this time is Hawaii Shell's turn.
Recently I released the first version of EyeSight, the image viewer,
and the wallpapers pack for Hawaii 0.2.0.
There was even a Maui pre-alpha 2 release 
More modules will come soon.
For this release 30 issues were closed , there are 215 commits
between 0.1.0 and 0.1.92  and 25 commits for the Weston plugin .
A lot of progress were made in the last couple of months, including:
- Improved multi screen support
- Theming QML API
- A lot of glitches in the AppChooser fixed
- Modal dialogs
- Lock screen
- Logout, lock, restart, power off and suspend actions
Themes can be written using QML which is a lot easier than the
previous approach inherited from Plasma involving SVG images.
The default theme is builtin for now, for 0.2.0 I plan to make
external themes loadable but there's no API stability promise yet.
You can build Hawaii sources from git. 
Make sure you build qtwayland stable branch and revert

If you are running Archlinux there are binary packages available. 
Hawaii Shell is now in a very good shape, it has the most important
things a shell needs:
- Application launcher
- PolicyKit integration
- Lock screen
More features will come from here to Hawaii 0.2.0.
Thus I am going to use Hawaii everyday at home, to better spot issues.
If somebody has XWayland rebased over xorg-server 1.4 please ping me.
