Submission + - Wayland 1.0 Released, Not Yet Ready To Replace X11 (phoronix.com)

An anonymous reader writes: After being talked about for four years, Wayland 1.0 was released today. The Wayland 1.0 release doesn't mark it yet as being ready for Linux desktop usage but just being API/protocol stable for future expansion. Wayland will now maintain backwards compatibility going forward, but how much longer will it take to replace X11 on the Linux desktop? Quite a while seems likely.
