I'm working on trying to submit a bug for an issue while running Blender 2.78c under Wayland, and need to know if Blender has a Wayland backend, or if it is still using X11 via Xwayland when running under a Wayland session?

    $\begingroup$ Before filing a bug report, make sure to test against the latest buildbot build, and not some old release. $\endgroup$ – dr. Sybren Jan 9 '18 at 22:25

As of today, not yet. You can do a simple query in the blender source repositories to verify: https://developer.blender.org/diffusion/

However, there has been some work to make it happen: https://github.com/walac/blender-wayland
