Hi all,

I won't be able to join the EG-NW call today, but I would like to send
an update on the status of the Chromium browser.

After the Web Engines Hackfest, Raphael from Intel merged his
completely-rewritten version of the Chromium recipes in the meta-browser
layer. This was required to support the GN build system, and now the
layer can be used to build the latest stable Chromium.


My colleagues have then merged into meta-browser the patches to build
our fork of Chromium with Wayland support. It's based on current beta
version (64), which is 11 milestones ahead the last Chromium-Wayland
provided by that layer!


The work to merge the Wayland-enabled fork into upstream Chromium has
already started and it will go on during the first quarter of 2018.
