Hi Derek,

I would like to push XDG shell support for ivi-shell: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/wayland/weston/merge_requests/86

It would be great if you and other maintainers can ack and/or review this merge request till beginning of February. If they are no major concerns, it would be great to have it in this release.

Automotive Grade Linux project is already using this feature.
Here is the list of patches they are applying on top of weston 2.0: https://git.automotivelinux.org/AGL/meta-agl/tree/meta-agl-profile-graphical/recipes-graphics/wayland/weston_2.0.0.bbappend

Best regards

Hi all,

It's been quite some time since our last weston release, and there's been some discussion of getting the next one out in the January to March timeframe (this would be the last release to have an autotools build, btw).

Does anyone have objections to an early February freeze and a March release?  Anyone with large series near completion?

Also, I'd like to float the idea of removing the fbdev backend for this release (or the next).  The bulk of the interesting features target the drm backend, and it feels like fbdev can sometimes be a bit of a pain to update when changes are required elsewhere.  Any strong opinions either way?
