Currently in the experimental stages, Collabora continue hacking away at the code for Wine to enable full Wayland support and they've reached some big new milestones with Vulkan and multiple monitor support.
Their work will eventually mean you won't need XWayland for much of it, as this Wayland driver for Wine allows Windows applications to run on Linux directly with Wayland compositors. It's both highly interesting and vitally important for the future of Linux when more and more distributions are moving fully to Wayland.
In a fresh "RFC" (Request for comments) set of code sent into the Wine mailing list, Collabora's Alexandros Frantzis details the the big new features being enabled including:
- Vulkan support
- Multi-monitor support
- HiDPI handling
- Cursor clipping/relative movement
- Wayland keymap handling
I think the driver has reached a point where it has enough features to be useful for many use cases and also provide enough confidence that it is a viable option going forward. My plan now is to mainly focus on fixes/improvements and to start preparing for staging by creating a more upstream/review friendly patchset series. Alexandros Frantzis
