Last month at flock, we reported on GNOME and Fedora developer Matthias Clasen’s talk on the replacement for the X display server, Wayland. Now on his blog, Matthias has provided a brief update on the status of Wayland support in GNOME 3.14 (the version of GNOME that will ship with Fedora 21).

In this development cycle, the GNOME Developers have added support for keyboard layouts, drag & drop, and support for touch devices. Also there is an impressive number of applications that natively support GNOME Wayland including nautilus, gedit and GNOME Software.
