New progress in native Wayland support for OpenJDK

OpenJDK/Java has made progress in implementing native “pure” Wayland toolkit integration that does not rely on X.Org/X11 or XWayland to render Java GUI applications. Developer Alexey Ushakov has updated the OpenJDK Wiki this week to outline the latest progress in getting Wayland support for OpenJDK on Linux, a further refinement to the mature X11 support. This new toolkit support continues to be implemented from scratch and is currently being developed through Java’s Wakefield repository and the “pure_wl_toolkit” branch.
