    Phoronix: Xfce 4.14 Sees Its Long-Awaited Pre-Release

    The GTK3-ported Xfce 4.14 might see its long-awaited official release in the near future. In preparing for a hopeful August debut, the Xfce 4.14 pre-release is now available...

      Vblank & colord support: Yes, please, and thank you! Those two things are why I ended up leaving XFCE to my lower end older laptop(s) and switched to KDE/Plasma on my newer hardware.

        *ah hem* If only XFCE were as good as KDE... this xfce dinosaur is moving so slowly, it's acting like a tar pit for all the users that don't know any better!

        (Please Note: This is a solid tongue-in-cheek shit post)

          High latency

          Hereby I introduce xfwm4-lowlatency, which consists of the following:
          Add the following in src/compositor.c after line 1649 for lower latency:
          Code:
             glFinish();
          (does not work on Intel...)

            The greatest thing about Xfce is that it never changes. It's like, when something is so good that you just want more of the same thing.

            This release should complete the trasition from GTK2 to GTK3. Hopefully, this will be accomplished without anybody being able to notice any differences.

            - Which version of Xfce do you have?
            - I didn't know Xfce had any versions. I thought the Universe had Xfce since start.

              Sad to see many horrid GNOME concepts like switches and popovers being adopted. Off we go to LXQt.

                It honestly feels smoother than most desktops even if there is latency. Kwin-lowlatency helps make plasma feel similar, but i don't think it's quite as smooth as XFCE. (saying this as a plasma fan) ... That said, it could just be a sugar pill, as XFCE was one of the first Linux desktops i viewed as a favorite.

                    Genuine question, what can XFCE do here that KDE cannot?
