Wayland and XFCE

I've searched around these forums and have found very little on discussion of Wayland.  I've seen a few mentions here or there, but not much else and I don't really trust the posters in a lot of those threads because they struck me as highly unintelligent. 

Anyways, I am wondering if XFCE plans on adopting Wayland and rewriting their compositor or if XFCE is going to be dead soon?  I mean, it will still exist, but as far as have any potential of having a real future it will be dead.

Re: Wayland and XFCE

The developers still haven't released 4.12 yet, with no release date yet. Xfce will be ported to Gtk+ 3 after 4.12 and only after they ported everything to Gtk+ 3 there can be a Wayland port. But don't worry, Wayland still isn't anywhere near usable, and won't be ready until at least next year.

Re: Wayland and XFCE

I forget mention that nick in a interview (in italian) say that Wayland for now is not more like a X extension, so for now X remain the main objetive but future can say other, this is what I underestand from that Itallian Interview

Nick correct me, please

Re: Wayland and XFCE

The problem with Wayland is the same problem with Mir, Wayland is far from complete.  We have a few revisions until Wayland is complete and I hope the XFCE team does improve it so we dont see the problems with Wayland that we have seen with Mir.
