Description

Migrating to Wayland also means to bid farewell to X11 Window Manager features that were popular in a few niches. Among them: The ability to set WM hints for an icon window.

This talk will present a brief recap on what this feature was used for, sketch a proposal for a Wayland protocol for this use-case. Including a short demonstration of a prototype implementation in protocol and compositor.
