    That's a good step forward!

    And now do we have any date for Mir/Wayland from NVidia? Or maybe Nvidia will only provide those "neutral" drivers that open source project will use by themselves?

      I believe the agreement was for Nvidia and the community to work towards a new API that solves all the remaining issues. Since we haven't heard of that API being anywhere near finished (is it even started?), there won't be a driver anytime soon.

        The only thing missing for me is a way to run Xwayland with the NVIDIA drivers. I don't know if it would be enough if they implement GLAMOR support, which Xwayland uses.

              I'll have you know I get a silky smooth and cinematic 24 fps in Super Tux Kart with my 390X.

                We have this so far, not sure if any discussions or implementations of it exist: https://github.com/cubanismo/allocator

                  Will this allow bumblebee users to finally be able to use Vulkan?

                    According to phoronix news, mutter 3.23.2 supports EGLStream/EGLDevice, so, maybe they decided to use Nvidia approach instead of creating third allocating API.
