Re: GNOME 3.13.2

I have made systemd optional in mutter:

This disables the build of our native backend based on KMS, but Wayland support is still there in the X11 nested backend. Wayland is still a hard-dependency, and currently Wayland hasn't been ported to other systems yet. I am still planning on making Wayland optional at some point before the 3.14 release.

Our Wayland native implementation will not be portable to non-systemd systems, Linux or otherwise. The way I would port things is to port Weston to other systems first, and then add a wl_fullscreen_shell backend to mutter, which will allow us to run mutter nested under Weston.

The second release of the GNOME 3.14 development cycle is here.
See [1] for the new features that have been proposed for this cycle.

To compile GNOME 3.13.2, you can use the jhbuild [2] modulesets [3]
(which use the exact tarball versions from the official release).

Note that as part of Wayland development, 3.13.2 temporarily depends on systemd.
This is needed because Wayland support in GNOME depends on systemd, but
before 3.14 is released Wayland support will be made optional.
When will Wayland and systemd dependencies become optional? This have caused mutter and gnome-shell fail to build on FreeBSD.


The release notes that describe the changes between 3.13.1 and 3.13.2
are available. Go read them to learn what's new in this release:

The GNOME 3.13.2 release itself is available here:

This release is a snapshot of early development code. Although it is
buildable and usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking
purposes. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development

For more information about 3.13, the full schedule, the official module
lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.13 page:
