    Hi Michael,

    How sure can you be that this is a step towards targeting wayland/mir?

      If you grep through the extracted directory of the nvidia installer you can find since some releases the wayland, i think it was libnvidia-wayland or something, forgot what it was.
      I'd like to know when we can finally test nvidia on wayland...

        What does full EGL support mean?

          Accelerated Wayland depends on some of the EGL enhancements that were added.

            So is EGL no longer just on 32bit and has 64bit support? If so, I wonder if the kwin EGL renderer backend will now work on NVIDIA....

            I was also kind of hoping we would see some performance work on Shadow of Mordor - one can dream, I guess.

                They support EGL by specification. What they don't support are the platform specific extensions. Michael should probably change his wording.

                  Good news for nvidia owners... I must say I am very much tempted to ditch my 6850 and the OSS drivers for a good ol'nvidia card... But if doing so, why not ditch Linux altogether, and install windows 7, then ?

                  Come on, Khronos, we need vulkan for a good open source API implementation on all cards.

                  On a side note, I am tempted to start a draft for multi-gpu implementation in open source if I have some time to spare this year. Are there some starting points I could use ?

                    Wait what? So you're saying the only reason you are staying with Linux is because of the graphic drivers? So is it an all or nothing open source drivers thing?

                    Seems kinda fucked up if you ask me.
