With the release of Fedora 30 rapidly approaching, Christian Schaller has published a list of changes and improvements coming to the distribution's Workstation edition. Many of these changes include improvements to Wayland - such as getting a native Firefox build for Wayland working, making NVIDIA binary drivers working smoothly with Wayland and fixing bugs gamers face when running Wayland sessions. Another area seeing progress is Flatpak support: "Owen Taylor has been in charge of getting Flatpaks building in Fedora, ensuring we can produce Flatpaks from Fedora packages. Owen set up a system to track the Fedora Flatpak status, we got about 10 applications so far, but hope to greatly grow that number of time as we polish up the system. This enables us to start planning for shipping some applications in Fedora Workstation as Flatpaks by default in a future release. This respository will be available by default in Fedora workstation 30 and you can choose the flatpak version of the package through the new drop down box in the top right corner of GNOME Software. For now the RPM version of the package is still the default, but we expect to change that in later releases of Fedora Workstation." Schaller has a great write-up of the new features and enhancements coming to Fedora 30.
