Chromium on Wayland

Chromium developers have started working on the alternatives of X11 window systems on Linux such as Wayland.

Tiago Vignatti sent a message to the free desktop mailing list, “Today we are launching publicly Ozone-Wayland, which is the implementation of Chromium’s Ozone for supporting Wayland graphics system. Different projects based on Chromium/Blink like the Chrome browser, ChromeOS, among others can be enabled now using Wayland.”

Google Chromium project pages explains what’s Ozone, “We have recently started adding the Ozone meta-platform to Chromium. Ozone is an abstraction beneath the Aura window system for low level input and graphics. Once complete, the abstraction will support underlying systems ranging from embedded SoC targets to new X11-alternative window systems on Linux such as Wayland or Mir to bring up Aura Chromium without needing additional platform code added to the Chromium source tree.”

We are looking for aspiring bloggers and journalists for The Mukt. If you are interested, apply now!

Vignatti further wrote, “In particular, we have Chrome Browser and Content Shell enabled and running on Wayland. All the projects are under active development (therefore unstable) but we are hoping to cope with fixes together with the open source community.”

  1. Fedora 20 repository with Ozone-Wayland or it didn’t happen

    • Why not set up a cron, a build and host that repo yourself? :) Wayland is not exactly Fedora specific, methinks. :)

      • Well, we have to find some uses for the Wayland Tech Preview included in Fedora 20… :)
