    I'm curious if it can actually run well. I had no NVIDIA GPU to check that out myself, but I look forward to see some tests, especially when it comes to gaming with Xwayland.

      Now desktops can finally drop that horrendous EGLStreams backend.

        GBM! Woohoo! :-)
        After waiting for a decade watching this fragmented mess of a development, finally something is moving in the right consolidated direction...

              Do you mean that EGLStreams was actually a better interface?

              Edit: sorry I misread...

                Are they really adding GBM support on the first version that doesn't support Kepler?

                  So, what is necessary to get Wayland working with GBM on Ubuntu 20.04?

                  - This Driver
                  - Latest Mesa through ppa???
                  - Latest x.org through ppa???
