    Soooo Sway is going to play nicely with nvidia GPUs via Vulkan support?

    o la la... maybe we'll get a unified Wayland desktop framework with Nvidia blessing after all.

    I'd just like to congratulate Nvidia for their contribution.

    Sounds weird saying that.

    So now they won't need GBM and EGLstreams anymore?

    LoL Nvidia got the extension approval work done because it was gonna be a Mesa extension if not.
    Sounds like a parent way to get the kids to do their homework.

    That sounds like it will finally allow easier Wayland addoption in linux desktop.
    Big thanks also for making this extension as part of Vulkan official extension - Good job

    "thus the Vulkan-powered Wayland compositors should ultimately work nice on NVIDIA hardware too"

    Does this mean they can simply do a Vulkan-powered Wayland compositor and avoid all the EGLStream vs. GBM debate altogether?

    Love to see how emersion seems to work on small issues like this all over the place. Thanks a lot to everyone involved

    That's so cool. I wonder if there could be a decent performance improvement. I'm not knowledgeable enough to know, but I have observed games perform much better with Vulkan.

    The mali GPU in my pinephone won't be able to use this, but my upcoming L5 might 🙏
