After updating Plasma to 5.8.3 I can no longer use Wayland session in SDDM(it drops back to SDDM) and run apps from Gnome like Terminal...
Everything worked fine before updating. Any workarounds?

Are you sure you were logging into Wayland sessions with Plasma-5.7.5?

Not sure if it was 5.7.5-it was previous stable version from Gentoo repo.
First I was able to run only X sesion, but after installing latest testing mesa (13) I was able to run Plasma on Wayland. Also, I'm running Gnome on Wayland now.
The only problem I had was inability to run Plasma on Wayland from GDM, but SDDM worked fine.(This problem is described in Red Hat Bugzilla as Bug 1389584. I had exactly the same issue, but wasn't sure if I should report it to Gentoo Bugzilla...

Well, that certainly is amazing. But wayland support is nowhere near stable, and I don't think anyone is testing it on a regular basis, there is no wiki for it, dependencies to make it work with openrc are missing in tree and not yet completely figured out or landed upstream, so I sort of expect it to come and go.

It's too bad I can not roll it back to previous version -it is removed from portage tree... Also any ideas on Gnome (gtk) apps? They just don't start either(tried calc and term, both failing)
