Wayland is a set of protocols for communication between applications and compositors that is expected to replace Xorg in the Linux graphics stack in the next years. Mainline Kodi currently lacks support for Wayland and must thus use an Xwayland-emulated X11 session for display which is not optimal in the long run. Therefore, native support for Wayland should be implemented in Kodi.
