> I'm more than a bit concerned about dropping X11.  I am the packager for KiCad on Fedora.  The upstream KiCad team has stated [1] that they won't support Wayland issues unless they can be recreated on X11, meaning that I'll be left with no way to support the Fedora KiCad packages.

KiCad requests the XWayland compatibility layer when starting, however this is an emulation mode and issues arising while using this mode need to be recreated under X11 before they will be addressed.  At the moment, Wayland has no support for cursor warping, which means that the KiCad features of centering the cursor when zooming, and continuously panning the canvas, are broken on Wayland systems.

It looks like the cursor warping is supported in all major compositors
with the cursor-constraints protocol:

Beyond that, I think it's probably a good idea to get a bug filed with
KDE upstream to get this tracked and figured out with the wxWidgets
folks. Of all the folks involved in the Wayland protocols development,
they are by far the easiest to work with.

There's also a Matrix room about KDE Wayland stuff if you would like
to talk to developers directly about these things:
