I have released a new release of my Wayland Live CD project, which is named after my favorite celebrity.

On this release I have:
  Wayland Master
  Weston 1.3 (for Orbital and Hawaii shell compatibility) 
  Wayland enabled Clutter
  Wayland enabled SDL
  Wayland enabled GTK
  Wayland enabled QT
  Wayland enabled EFL/Elementary
  Wayland enabled mplayer
  Wayland enabled gstreamer
  Orbital for Wayland (selectable at login) *Does not work on Virtualbox
  Hawaii for Wayland (selectable at login)
  KDE Frameworks Wayland programs (only a few run, as many crash trying to make X calls)
  Native Calligra Wayland programs
  Wayland enabled Gnome-shell (selectable at login) *Does not work on Virtualbox
  A graphical utility for configuring udev for weston multiseat/multi pointer
  A rudimentary Wayland login manager written in Bash, that supports user switching and session selection.
  Wayland enabled Enlightenment E19 (Only runs in a nested session however)
  Menu options to run Gnome Shell Wayland, Enlightenment e19 Wayland, Orbital, and Hawaii desktops as nested sessions.

**Gnome-shell-wayland, Enlightenment E19 Wayland, Calligra for Wayland, and the minimal of what works for KDE Frameworks on Wayland are whats new to this release.

You can download the ISO files here:

The difference between the ISOs is that the smaller one has the development packages removed, and development symbols removed from the binaries in /opt. At a user level, there is no functionality loss with using the smaller ISO.

If you want to build the ISOs yourself, you will need to check out SVN Revision 1887, before you run the build script.
