Hello KDE application developers,
with Plasma 5.8 we have reached a quite solid state in the Wayland porting
efforts. A state where you can start to test whether your application works
correctly on Wayland. Normally your application should just work, but if not
we need to know it before we start pushing Wayland to a wider audience.
So please start to test your application, Test it completely, even the most
If you hit a bug, please report it against product kwin, component wayland-
generic. We will take it from there and forward the bug report to the right
component, be it in our code, your code, Qt code or even missing functionality
in Wayland itself. Please report every issue, even if it is extremely minor -
it might indicate a bug in QtWayland. I don't mind if I get too many bug
reports due to an issue being reported a few times.
If for whatever reason a problem should exist in your code base we are happy
to help you with porting it, so that it works on X11 and Wayland.
For testing I recommend to use a Wayland live iso like http://files.kde.org/
Such isos have the latest code and also hand-picked patches for QtWayland.
Thank you for helping our great Wayland endeavour.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask!
