Nope. Only KUbuntu 16.04.3 LTS + native X-Server 1.20-RC4, with all
kinds of permutations of intel-ddx/nouveau-ddx/modesetting-ddx +
dmabuf support on/off (for modesetting-ddx), nouveau-kms
atomic/non-atomic, Linux 4.17's drm-next. Didn't find any new bugs
compared to before, but didn't test AMD yet, or more modern gpu's than
my 8 year old Intel/Nvidia laptop.
With my old KDE-5 install from 16.04.3 LTS, kwin wayland is unusable,
it usually locks up at login, or locks up the whole gfx within seconds
to a few minutes of use, never survives a logout, requires reboot. I
assume this is better with recent kwin wayland, but i don't test with
it so far at all. No testing under weston + Xwayland either so far,
just wanted to get something out before going to bed.
But the bug that is fixed in this patch is so obvious, once
discovered, it could only make things work worse by "unblocking" other
so far dormant bugs :)
