Here's the alpha for the upcoming 1.10 release.

This release adds support into Weston for a number of recently added
Wayland protocols.  This includes the new drag and drop actions, new
frame and axis events, buffer co-ordinates for surface damage, 

A V4L2 (Video for Linux 2) client is now included for demonstrating a
way to retrieve video frames from V4L2 devices as dmabuf.  YUV dmabuf
formats are also supported now.

The IVI shell improves its multi screen functionality, and now supports
a variety of modes including side-by-side, fullscreen, tiled, and

Touch input support is added.

Various configuration options in weston.ini have been added to make it
easier to use and do testing with Weston.  "vt-switching"
enables/disables Ctrl-Alt-fn key combos.  "allow-zap" enables/disables
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace from killing the server.

systemd notification support can be enabled by the
--enable-systemd-notify configuration flag.  This permits for instance
establishing a watchdog that can restart weston if it crashes.

Weston now requires the recently created wayland-protocols package to be
installed.  wayland-protocols provides a collection of proposed,
experimental, and/or unstable protocols for use with Wayland.  These
used to be included in Weston, but were split out to make it easier for
other compositor implementations to contribute to and track them,
without needing a dependency on Weston or needing to provide a Weston
reference implementation before they can be shared.

There's probably many more features included which I've overlooked.  Of
course, this release also brings the usual heap of bug fixes, leak
plugging, code refactoring, documentation, and test improvements.
