    Is this something that only gnome needed? Or is it something that all desktops could benefit from? It would be interesting if kwin-lowlatency could tackle this.

      At a quick glance, the code looks really Gnome/Mutter specific. I suppose it just depends on how other window managers/environments are coded if doing that method will benefit them or not.

        Canonical doesn't care about KDE, XFCE etc. they say they support them and they do it very badly, they only care about Gnome.

          @KDE users. Please discuss kwin where appropriate. This is really not the place.

          These improvements only benefit mutter. 3.34 Beta is approaching and hopefully this can be sorted out quickly.

            Charlie68 True. But that makes a lot of sense. Ubuntu only need one desktop. Pooling resources is the way to go.

              Speaking about nice stuff that hopefully will make it before 3.34. In random order..

                should they care about i3 DWM fluxbox mate lumina lxqt lxde openbox awesomewm and so on too? It's better they fix all the issues with gnome than give us a lot of useless half baked solutions

                  I thought Kubuntu was an entirely community driven project? Canonical might be willing to include certain packages in their repos but that doesn't necessarily mean they have support of these DEs.

                    Not really. Being able to put together your own desktop is one of the best things about GNU/Linux (and POSIX-compliant operating systems in general). There are distributions like Debian, that officially support multiple desktops, and they're falling behind. If they want to do something worthwhile, they should contribute to X.org.
