The window management system for embedded platforms (QWS) has been removed in Qt 5 and its functionality replaced by the QtWayland module. This presentation will demonstrate how QtWayland provides both a method to impliment Wayland compositors, as well as way to run Qt 5 applications in existing Wayland compositors.

It also explains the process of writing a custom window compositor using the QtCompositor API and what is needed to get QtWayland working on a new hardware. As a bonus the presentation demonstrates how to leverage QtQuick 2.0 to create unique user experiences for multi-application embedded Linux environments.

Target audience is embedded Linux developers, and current desktop Linux developers who are interested in the upcoming move from X11 to Wayland.
