    Phoronix: It's Looking Unlikely KDE Will See Per-Screen Scaling On X11 This Year

    At the start of 2020 well known KDE developer Nate Graham who publishes the weekly status reports on their desktop environment posted a 2020 KDE roadmap of sorts. Now being half-way through the year, here is a look at how that roadmap is looking with what items have been completed, what is still being tackled, and what is looking less likely to be accomplished...

    That's fine, but will Wayland work by the end of the year?

      what is the problem with Wayland to take more than a decade still in beta or maybe alpha stage?

          A lot of improvements this year (although in the Phoronix headlines only negative stuff is seen about it, as usual in Phoronix when talking about KDE or Qt or anything related to it, following its "strong support for GNOME").

            Aryma There’s nothing wrong with Wayland. Pick a better compositor if you got problems.

              If Phoronix only put KDE in negative light, they wouldn't even bother with sharing the weekly progress reports from Nate which are full of nice things. I don't know if there is similar for Gnome by anyone, but I would have thought to see Gnome fans shaming Phoronix for bias to KDE if there is an equivalent Gnome weekly blog.

              Headlines are just that, they're meant to stir up interest to read the article.

                There's nothing wrong with GNOME (or that is what the devs say). Pick a better desktop environment if you got problems.

                  Plasma Wayland is actually starting to become pretty solid. I'm betting by the time 5.20 rolls around most people wont have much trouble with it unless they are using a Nvidia card.

                    Another thing to note is that the plasma mobile team is working on getting partial screen rendering updates into kwin (to boost performance/efficiency on mobile GPUs), alternative keyboard support protocol so that plasma mobile can use ubuntu touch's maliit keyboard (though it's not limited to just maliit), and wayland thumbnail support.
