Switch from X11 to Wayland after upgrade from Chimaera to Daedalus

Hello,
as said in the title, I successfully upgraded my Devuan XFCE distro from Chimaera (4) to Daedalus (5). But it still uses X11, i.e., echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE prints x11.
How do I switch to Wayland? Can I decide at boot time whether to use X11 or Wayland?

If you're using sddm as a login ... you get a choice, but it's hard to see without a colourful backdrop.
