[MATE] Will Wayland be available in next releases ?

Greetings everyone !

I'm using Fedora 29 MATE (Mate 1.20.4) on my Acer SWIFT 1 114.

I really love the Mate Desktop Environment but, as of today, it uses X11 as its window displayer. My computer has an Intel Pentium N5000 with iGPU UHD 605. With X11, I experience some tearing on the web.

Thanks to this article I fixed almost all of the problem :

Sometimes I still experience some little tearing at the top of the screen (white tearing showing sometimes).

When I tried Fedora Gnome with Wayland, I didn't experience any tearing at all.

So my question is :

Will MATE use Wayland instead of X11 in the next releases ?

Regards
