Sometime within the next week, I'll be updating wlroots in rawhide to
0.16.0 and sway to the latest release candidate. As usual, the update
contains API/ABI breaking changes and soname will be bumped to
libwlroots.so.11. wlroots0.15 compatibility package will be introduced
in the same side-tag.
No breakages are expected and no action is required from the maintainers
of dependent packages.
I'll send another notice with a side-tag id to unblock the updates that
already require 0.16 (currently only labwc) when it's ready.
I'm also planning to update wlroots in f37 once 0.16.1 is available.
There are a plenty of bug fixes and some important security features
(ext-session-lock-v1) that, I believe, should not require waiting
another 6 months for f38.
Sway will likely not be included in the initial f37 update, but may
follow later when it gets sufficient testing.

Has anybody thought about / done any work on this?
When I try and replicate my Fedora KDE + Sway desktop environment on my
old Zenbook with only 4gb RAM, I drive it into the ground . . I am
doing more road trips now but I can't afford a new laptop ATM so I am
thinking of using the old laptop like a Chromebook or remoting to my
desktop and letting the desktop do all the heavy lifting.
In the old days I played around with running remote X applications which
worked but was a bit kludgey . . maybe it would be / could be nicer with
Even before discovering Sway, I used ALL my windows full screen anyway -
so I could drop back to some sort of remote X thing I guess but it would
be MUCH nicer if I could use Wayland and Sway somehow . .
Any feedback appreciated!

As the daylight saving time ended, likely affecting everyone's
schedules, we agreed to pick a new meeting time. If you are planning to
participate in the SIG meetings, please use the following survey to
indicate your availability:
I'll review the responses and announce the result by this Sunday (Nov
20, PDT), at least 24 hours before the selected time.
On my new hard disk I might have to do what I have done before, install
KDE and build the Sway setup from there . .
Sorry I haven't been to any meetings yet - they are not at convenient
Sydney (Australia) times but mostly it has been because of other
conflicts - is there likely to be another one soon?
