> Xfway Aims To Provide A Wayland Compositor Inspired By Xfce's Xfwm4 [1]

> While it doesn't appear to be an official part of Xfce at least at this time, Xfway is a Wayland compositor inspired by Xfce's Xfwm4 window manager.

Xfway was pointed out on the Wayland mailing list [2] for this Xfce window manager inspired compositor.

The code appears to have started out from the Weston code-base but adding support for Sway's WLROOTS among other changes inspired from Xfwm4.

Those wanting to give this Wayland compositor a whirl can find it on GitHub [3].
