[HDGEM] Wayland is a computer protocol that specifies the communication between a display server (called a Wayland compositor[clarification needed]) and its clients, as well as a reference implementation of the protocol in the C programming language.

Wayland is developed by a group of volunteers initially led by Kristian Høgsberg as a free and open community-driven project with the aim of replacing the X Window System with a modern, simpler windowing system in Linux and other Unix-like operating systems.

The project's source code is published under the terms of the MIT License, a permissive free software licence.

As part of its efforts, the Wayland project also develops a reference implementation of a Wayland compositor called Weston.
