      2d acceleration and toolkits strike me as places that could potentially really benefit from using Vulkan over GL.

        End of the year is fin with me. Vulkan will probably be in a sort of experimental mode in distro releases for the next 6 months or so anyway.

          If I remember correctly - qt includes already a opengl 3d renderer something. there were some news here about half a year ago. maybe they want to port that to vulkan and not the 2d part

            I love QT5. I've used it to do almost anything from GUI apps on desktops to Sailfish OS apps. This is really good news. I think QT5 and all the other 2d/accelerated toolkits can benefit in the performance area with Vulkan.

              Wonder if Clutter will support Vulkan too, and if GTK+ will get a Vulkan context.

              Also if SDL will support Vulkan.

                GLFW already seems to support Vulkan. As for SDL, it'd be nice if it could provide an abstraction to create a Vulkan surface as well so that lazy developers like myself don't have to know what window system their application is running on. You can use SDL with pretty much anything, though - even D3D.

                    I keep asking myself the same question. At this rate 5.7 will happen sooner
