Phoronix: OpenGL Changes In KDE's KWin 5 Window Manager
Martin Gräßlin, KDE's Kwin maintainer, has shared some new OpenGL implications due to changes made in the KWin 5 window manager due to relying on Qt5 with Qt Quick 2...
This might be bad for Wayland. Current QtWayland implementation requires Qt to be built with OpenGL ES2 support even on desktops.Thus it's unlikely now to see KWin OpenGL ES on the desktop even though there's the GLES drivers.
Or, maybe Intel has EGL support for up to GL 3.3 and you can use _that_ with Wayland? I'm on binary nvidia.
I mean, to me EGL and desktop opengl are kinda oxymorons.
Sooo, new KDE is step back from what we have now? It seems new Qt brings more trouble and for now nothing good.
