This is Hawaii feature plan and notes about this release.

Hawaii 0.2.0 is the first stable release.

The plan is to release a desktop with the most important features available so that people can start using it. More features such as power management will be available later.

This release requires Qt 5.2 from git and the qtwayland (stable branch). Patches on top of qtwayland are not required anymore.
