Wayland is a protocol for a compositor to talk to its clients as well
as a C library implementation of that protocol. The compositor can be
a standalone display server running on Linux kernel modesetting and
evdev input devices, an X application, or a wayland client
itself. The clients can be traditional applications, X servers
(rootless or fullscreen) or other display servers.
This package contains the development headers for the libraries found
in libwayland0. Non-developers likely have little use for this package.

wayland (0.85.0-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Upload to unstable.
* Wayland/Weston aren't quite ready to replace Xorg yet, but let's
upload those to unstable anyway, so that people can find out by
themselves. On the plus side, mesa can stop getting wayland support
enabled in experimental, then disabled back when uploaded to unstable.
* Update long description, wayland-demos got replaced by weston.
