Wayland is the new display server protocol for Linux and Unix-based OSes. While it should be about as easy as switching some internal libraries, there are still several glaring issues left.
For example, Minecraft will try to focus the game window, but this is not allowed under Wayland, and the error should be ignored. In addition, it will try to set the window icon. This should instead be done by installing a desktop file and icon to their respective directories.
As more Linux distributions start using Wayland by default, it is necessary to resolve these issues as the compatibility layer (XWayland) generally throttles graphics compared to what's really possible.
