@kekekeks can we milestone that for Beta 2 instead? I like the idea but we don't need that right now for beta 1

We already have new previewer, so BuildAvaloniaApp is needed anyway
It's better to have people make all requried changes to entry point at once

We can't keep adding features and issues to beta if we want to release. We need to do a feature freeze.

@kekekeks I just tried AS on the latest Ubuntu (17.10) which has switched to Wayland. A few things aren't working, like menus and popups etc. Is this something you aware of?

Try to force it use X11 backend via XWayland
Wayland doesn't have a proper window positioning system
I guess we have to pass the list of allowed backends to GTK or something
TL;DR: linux people yet again have invented something that's incompatible with everything else for absolutely no reason
I'm not dealing with these in the immediate future

I guess we'll have our own wayland client implementation that would be able to use xdg_surface_set_window_geometry or something
Right now we are stuck with gtk and their weird ideas
@jameswalmsley please, check if https://ci.appveyor.com/project/AvaloniaUI/Avalonia/build/0.1.4149 fixes the popup issue

@kekekeks its still the same :(
Gdk-Message: Window 0x1217b00 is a temporary window without parent, application will not be able to position it on screen.
must need its parent setting?
