How to match versions of wayland/weston/freerdp?

I have also tried to use FreeRDP with Weston and Yocto toolchain on
iMX6 board. I used Yocto from master branch. My versions for Weston
were 1.6 and 1.7 and for FreeRDP 2604ff20bd and 3f371b22ad. With
2604ff20bd from stable-1.1 branch I got a lot of CMake issues and gave
up. Most promising was Weston 1.7 with FreeRDP 3f371b22ad as I posted
You can find my Yocto recipes if you find those useful, FreeRDP:
and Weston: I
also tried with and without iMX6 platform specific patches:

Someone got it working earlier with Weston 1.5 and FreeRDP 3f371b22ad:
I haven't yet tried downgrading Weston to version 1.5.

Good luck and please report back if you got it working!
