This page tracks the Wayland showstoppers throughout the stack. Showstoppers are major bugs, or missing features affecting the Wayland session but not the X11 session. This is part of KDE's Wayland goal.

True Showstoppers

These are the issues that must be fixed before we can recommend Wayland by default. The current plan is to flip the switch before the Alpha release, but then revert that change if we don't have all of these issues fixed before the first beta:

KWin/compositing/window management


This is effectively an "Errata/Known issues" list: quality-of-life annoyances, problems with workarounds, etc. Don't expect all or even any of these to be fixed before we go wayland-by-default.

Session management

KWin/compositing/window management



Upstream, not fixed yet

Fixed upstream in Qt 6

These are fixed in Qt 6 but neither backportable nor backported to Qt 5.
