The 1.7 release of Wayland is now available for download. Thanks to all
who have contributed, and especially to the desktop environments and
client applications that now converse using Wayland.

The Wayland protocol may be considered "done" but that doesn't mean
there's not work to be done. This release focused on major improvements
to Wayland's documentation, minor improvements to the testsuite, and
some scattered bugfixes to the code itself.
Wayland's developer documentation is comprised of three different
pieces. First is a manually written prose, which includes diagrams and
a high level description of everything. Second is the protocol
documentation, which is mechanically generated from the protocol
definitions and works more like a reference manual. Third is the code
documentation, which is also mechanically generated but from the library
source code itself.
We've moved the written prose from being generated by publican to xmlto.
xmlto provides the same functionality and is more widely available.
Publican's advantage was its nicer stylesheets, but we ported these to
run on xmlto, and polished them up while we were at it. Architectural
diagrams in the developer documentation is now mechanically generated
with graphviz - this both improves its look a little and makes it easier
to maintain going forward.
For the protocol documentation, the recently added wl_surface role
concept is defined and given several examples. wl_display_destroy and
wl_display_add_socket are now documented, and some aspects of
threading clarified. It's also been reorganized, with deprecated
functions dropped and all validation errors fixed.
The auto-generated code documentation is prettier now thanks to
a lot of polishing work done to the xslt files, and markup
improvements done to code comments.
The protocol documentation content is tightened up: We've dropped
long-deprecated functions, hidden private functionality like wl_map, and
recategorized functions more accurately with the objects they modify.
You can check out this spiffed up documentation at:
A number of potential memory and event leaks in tests and clients have
been cleaned up, and leak checking is now enforced by the test suite
infrastructure. Leak checking is also added to the sample clients.
The testsuite now has a way to set timeouts for test completion. The
timeouts can be turned off by setting the environment variable
WAYLAND_TEST_NO_TIMEOUTS. For consistency, NO_ASSERT_LEAK_CHECK is now
called WAYLAND_TEST_NO_LEAK_CHECK. Both the
timeouts and leak checks are disabled when a debugger is attached.
There's a new C++ compilation test; even though Wayland and Weston are
in C, we want to make sure Wayland can be linked with compositors
written in C++ without incurring basic compilation failures.
Apart from tests and docs, there were a handful of changes to the
codebase itself. Notably, the client listen queue is increased to
128,to allow numerous clients to be connected simultaneously without
connection refused errors. Some cross-platform fixes, such as a FreeBSD
bug with sendmsg() usage, have been addressed. The remaining fixes
improve error checking and handling in various places.
Our next release will be version 1.8, planned as follows:
- Development of the 1.8 cycle starts immediately. A focus will be
major testing infrastructure enhancements, and cross-compositor
- 1.8-alpha around May 1st. Major features should be in by this
- 1.8-rc1 around May 15th.
- 1.8-rc2 around May 22nd.
- 1.8.0 release around May 29th
