    I know there is experimental player support for wayland, but I'm specifically talking about editor support.

    There's an nvidia gpu bug right now, that relates to xwayland windows - and it's really painful to use Unity while it's happening. I have to completely switch to x11 for unity, which is annoying.

    Is there any ETA? Or at least is it planned?

    It's planed, Unity devs said so, but not until Ubuntu LTS defaults to Wayland. And even after that I wouldn't hold my breath because Wayland development and adoption is super slow and Nvidia and Gnome are pooping over everything. You're better of staying on X11 for the time being.
