== Summary ==
KDE Plasma 6 is successor to KDE Plasma 5 created by the KDE
Community. It is based on Qt 6 and KDE Frameworks 6 and brings many
changes and improvements over previous versions. For Fedora Linux, the
transition to KDE Plasma 6 will also include dropping support for the
X11 session entirely, leaving only Plasma Wayland as the sole offered
desktop mode.

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.

For convenience, here is the relevant part of the KiCad position:

      It is known that KiCad does not work well under Wayland. There are a number of known issues with wxWidgets and Wayland. See the wxWidgets bug tracker for details [2].  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.



A question about this - the removal of X11 is listed on a change proposal for KDE.  Does the removal just apply to KDE or would it be distribution wide; i.e. affecting all desktops?
