Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 28
  • Last updated: 2018-01-15

Detailed Description

We will change SDDM to use wayland by default for Plasma. We will also attempt to automatically fall back to Xorg in cases where wayland is unavailable (like nvidia). There will still be option to use Plasma session on Xorg to those who don't want to switch to Wayland yet.

Benefit to Fedora

Using Wayland instead of X gives much better basis for isolating applications from each other and the system.
