    Exactly.

      More like Plasma's *stop* compositing approach. The "block compositing" approach fully disables the compositor until the application is unfocused, and since there is a delay during compositor re-enabling, you are able to see an uncomposited desktop for 1 second.
      Full-screen unredirection actually "pauses" the compositor by allowing it to resume compositing instantly when needed.

        Are you able to open an issue regarding this? (please include a backtrace if it crashes)

          Outstanding. Will install that tonight. Do you keep up with kwin updates? Have a Patreon page for support?

            Hopefully proper HiDPI fractional scaling support comes out of it as well. The only DE I've seen on Linux that does it really well without horrible interpolation artifacts is Deepin. Even Chrome and Firefox look as good as they do in Windows at 125%. It's the main reason I was sad Manjaro was considering dumping Deepin as I really need fractional scaling. I've tried so many configs they all suck in some way except Deepin.

              Good to see KDE getting some heavyweight backing. Thanks Valve!

                It would be nice if we could have gsync/freesync working on multi monitor setups, and perhaps in windowed modes also. Atm you must disable secondary displays to use VRR modes which is a HUGE disadvantage over windows.

                  Yes, I do. Usually a few hours of delay with official releases.

                  Sadly, nope.

                    Gnome Shell 3.32 experimental scaling does that too for Wayland apps, so I switched to Firefox Nightly for now (as it's seems like this is only browser that support Wayland in available binary builds).

                      Currently Wayland is broken in Firefox nightly https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1560545. Upgraded today and now it stopped working, but at least I see less flickering now as XWayland is not affected by the subsurface issue of kwin ;-)
