wlfreerdp, a Wayland client for FreeRDP

I just submitted a pull request to the FreeRDP project, which implements a new client named wlfreerdp.

It is basically a remote desktop protocol client for Wayland desktops. It will allow you to connect from a pure Wayland environment to a remote Linux machine running X11rdp, xfreerdp-server or the Weston RDP compositor, or a remote Windows machine having its remote desktop feature turned on. So, you will not need the XWayland compatibility layer to get it running.

So far, I have only tested it for the Weston RDP compositor, but it works great ! Well I mean, it works great if you do not need to have interactions with the keyboard or mouse, because it is a view-only client currently ;-).

Here is a video of the thing running.

The client is already available in the Tizen Common repositories.

I plan to implement input interactions when I am back in two weeks ; or maybe someone else will do it meanwhile... I heard there are several people interested !
